This is a desktop organiser which is
created from multiple laser-cut profiles from discarded cardboard packaging
bonded together to form a solid block.
The cardboard packaging utilised in this
design was once utilised for freighting Heineken beer from Holland to South
Africa. Most of the packaging was covered with vivid three colour print of the
Heineken branding, which at first glance is attractive and visually striking.
Once the beer reached the liquor store, the packaging was then set aside, ready
for disposal. Through the re-implementation of this waste material, with a
manufacturing process which manipulates the material rather than recycling the
material, a usable product is created which effectively solves the problem of a
