Student Project // 2017 // Product design, Manufacture, & Packaging design

Plastic drink caps are common in landfills around the world. The materials for this edition of products were collected from local recycling centers and sterilized in boiling water. The final product was sold at Ideal, a Bellingham, WA-based design retailer and was brought to Entreamigos, an NGO in Mexico, as a potential product that local artisans could make and sell. 

Raw Materials


Twenty candlesticks in two heights and four colorways were produced so consumers could pick their desired combinations.
