Why design? For me, design has the power to influence almost in every aspect of our lives, everything we use has been designed. Design can improve society as we know it, because it can bring solutions to people in need. Through design, we can products more efficient, sustainable, and less shallow.

make more

Design challenges me to be faster, to think more, to work harder, and to be better.

1 month duration Sustainable Design D.I. Boris Quintana / Colombia

Opportunity The lack of awareness, recycling practice and trash cans causes the accumulation of trash near garbage dumps in the city.

Solution This pending issue inspire us to use the concept of Fun Theory to create a special trash can that motivates people of all ages to recycle bottles and cans. A dump that consist in two spaceships against each other, one throwing aluminum cans and the other PET bottles like a mode of disposure.

Use The design uses a tension system to create resistance when pulling the firing pin, that when hit release, the bottle or can propels out. The door of the storage is designed to serve as a ramp at the time of emptying the garbage.
