iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

Lambai Boutle is a project that not only reuses and redesigns used glass bottles on Lambai or Liuqiu Island, a coral island in the Taiwan Strait, but also sets up an "off-Island" system so that the upcycled products become an export product. The residents of the island can follow the system to turn the bottles into new products to sell, or money boxes to fundraise for transportation costs.

Lambai Boutle project creates the possibility of solving both an environmental and a social problem by redesigning bottles into decorative pieces. The "Off-Island" system ensures resale of the bottle and reduction of leftover bottles.
