Unilever Istanbul Head Office terminating usage of paper cups, plastic bottles and disposable service tools like straws, plastic cutlery starting in June 5th, 2018 with ‘Bring Your Own Cup’ project. Office encourages his employees to bring their own cups and bottles, and from now on the guests visiting the office are served with ceramic cups. Installations and furnitures, made by our team, used as decor for the in-office event to present this project.
As team, collaboration of Farkli Mekan and -trak, we picked up used plastic water bottles and the last paper cups remained in the office store to start producing. We sometimes used paper cups by their smooth conical form and sometimes by crumpling them. We used plastic water bottles to make a surface for our furnitures. We made new furnitures and installations with the motto ‘Disposable plastics have to get out from our lives faster than their own accelerations.’ by re-functioning these materials which are not functional anymore for office.
