Bottlecan


Having discover a Budweiser beer bottle made of stainless steel my got a little bit better. Seeing that big companies are exploring new materials to replace plastic is very exciting and shows that people are realising need for change.
Made of aluminium the bottle is 100 % recyclable, lightweight and sealable. Using such materials could massively change the consumer markets, meaning there would be less waste and more thought.

This company is one of the leading manufactures for this new exciting product;

Sprayed bottles

As the first painted bottles were so loved, there will be more made. Employing Aron's painting skills the bottles are made to look more colourful and original. ALthough the silver bottles aimed to highlight the fact that the bottles were made of steel, this design allows for the bottles to become bright and interesting.
Again, it seems clear that this project becomes strongest through collaboration. The idea is that the customer can order what colour they want and Aron will charge accordingly.

Blue and green.
