I love discovering designers who are coming out with creative and interesting re-use products. Because I've got to tell you, looking at the gluttony of junk out there everyday can make a blogger feel blue.
Not the case with Swiss designers, 366cm. They can make pretty trash cans from scraps of paper, elegant candlesticks from old bottles and colorful picture frames from used telephone cards. Yeah, they're pretty great. Their processes aren't complicated and some of the items you and I could probably make at home. To be honest though, I probably wouldn't take the time to make a frame or a coat hook from an old calling card, but I'm sure glad there's someone who does.
Check out their 'Bobby' decanter as well...not a re-use item, but clever all the same.
