Coca-Cola's "Give it Back" Green Initiative

(8 years ago)
Coca-Cola has launched a new green initiative called the Give it Back rack, a POP display made from recycled Coke packaging. The idea behind the cardboard shelving unit is that retailers are asked to return them to Coca-Cola at the end of their useful life, at which point they're recycled.If we look past the marketing spin—all POP displays made from cardboard packaging are recycleable, so that's not new—what we do see and like is that Coke has chosen to design the units with areas of exposed cardboard, including unfinished edges, drawing attention to the humble material itself. We applaud this decision because it is somewhat risky; it can either be perceived as cheap and shoddy or, we hope, will lead the viewer to conclude that if corrugated cardboard is good enough for a corporate giant like Coke, it has perfect validity as a structural material.(more...)

Teddy Cruz: Lessons from Tijuana

(8 years ago)
Teddy Cruz runs the research-based architecture studio Estudio Teddy Cruz in San Diego, CA. The forward-looking architect recently won a Ford Foundation Visionary Award.Architect Teddy Cruz started off Tuesday's lecture at Dartmouth College with an example of a profession's paradigm shift. After returning from Iraq for the first time, Gen. David Petraeus remarked that a new type of solider is needed—a soldier that is equal parts social worker, anthropologist and psychologist. Similarly, the role of the architect needs shifting from that of purely designers to those who understand the entire context of the geography they are building in—essentially, to engage in "critical proximity" to social conflicts in the immediate area.(more...)

The Kelly Kettle and the Kickstarted Backcountry Boiler: Valid Design Update or Copy?

(8 years ago)
When we hear "Kickstarter" we think of wholly original product designs like Scott Wilson's TikTok/LunaTik or Studio Neat's Glif. Devin Montgomery's Backcountry Boiler is the first project we've seen that takes a product already on the marketplace and tries to improve it without changing the overall design.Remember the Kelly Kettle, the water-boiling camping thermos with a hollow conical fire chamber? Montgomery's Backcountry Boiler is essentially the same design, albeit in a shorter and slimmer form factor and with a silicon stopper rather than a cork one. Given that the Kelly Kettle is currently being produced by the fourth generation of Kellys associated with the kettle's design, we didn't realize this was even legal.(more...)
