Dutch designer Willem Heeffer utilized 334 recycled Heinz Beanz cans for the decor of top chef Hans Välimäki’s new Midhill American Diner in Helsinki, Finland.
The cans were collected from various restaurants and cleaned before being upcycled into cutlery holders, bar lights, a floor-to-ceiling storage display, and three chandeliers.
The chandeliers are each made from twenty one Heinz Beanz cans. The lamp is the perfect complement to the interior, which was designed by Martina Rosenqvist and Vera Öller, suspended from the same old corrugated roof panels used to clad the bars.
