DESIGN INSPIRATION | Water Office
Apparently architect Tadao Ando is not the only one fascinated with using bottled water as a design material. Check out this design for the Tokyo-based office that also uses the idea of plastic bottle walls to create a different effect. Klein Dytham Architecture designed this space for the Danone Company whose main product lines include Evian and Volvic water–using their products as design material for the space.
The Concept:Translucent screens were made to create special zones for seating, and meetings in an otherwise open plan office. Empty Evian bottles were strung on wires stretching from floor to ceiling like beads on a string.The Fab Factor: Though it’s not clear if they used recycled bottles for this project, it’s got the makings of a bubbly green idea. Fab fun with recycling.More Plastic Bottles in Design and Architecture:
