iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2021

Interactive Glass Recycling Bin is a product designed to address current glass recycling issues, allowing the public deeper participation in the recycling process and increasing the recycling rate of glass bottles. Achieving the goal of "meaningful recycling movement", the design makes smart use of texture and reflectivity of glass material, creating a two-way interaction between people and the glass recycling station. It is not only a recycling bin, but also an interactive aesthetic and educational public installation.

This design not only increases the value of recycling, but also encourages the behavior of recycling, creating two-way interaction in the circular economy. The recycling site is interactive, aesthetic, and functional, and at the same time serves as a public art installation for the urban landscape.
