/ Type of product: Recycling Containers
/ Manufacturer: Made Design
The main idea of this project is to create an element of friendly and simple ways, in which colour and functionality turn this set of containers in a reflection of nature.
The colour is the only universal language common to all cultures. In this case, we have had to keep the recycling colour standards, and then adapt it to each culture. Yet, we wanted to flee from the established standards by using colour scheme that can be found in nature, trying to turn an everyday object into something truly poetic, beautiful and inspiring. Thanks to the use of colour we can convey feelings and values in a way that could not be so precise or direct otherwise.
We strongly believe that the commitment to the environment starts learning to enjoy our surroundings and feeling part of it. We think that nature is a source of wealth and happiness, and when you realize that, it is hard you want to destroy or damage it.
We also believe that a concept is useless if the object that represents it does not comply fully its mission. That is why we have chosen for the containers the required height to meet the standards of ergonomics, creating an extremely simple shape, without superfluous ornaments.
