Dutch designer Willem Heeffer used 334 recycled cans for Top chef Hans Välimäki’s new American diner in Helsinki. This is up cycling in industrial scale. After collection at the many committed restaurants and cleaning , these tins are transformed into fork and knife holders, bar lights, a floor to ceiling storage display and three chandeliers.
The chandeliers give home to 21 Heinz Beanz classics each. The lamps fit perfectly into the interior designed by Martina Rosenqvist and Vera Öller who used old corrugated roof panels to clad the bars. The single Heinz Beanz can where it all started from is for sale at: www.willemheeffer.com
