Looking for holiday inspiration? PSFK ushers in the festive season with a selection of 25 of the best presents from our Gift Guide.

Japanese design studio nendo has worked with Coca-Cola to create ‘Bottleware‘, tableware made from glass Coca-Cola bottles that have deteriorated over the course of extensive recycling.

The material has been upcycled to make dishes and bowls that retain and enhance the distinctive lower shape and greenish-blue glass, as well as the ridges on the bottom.

Keeping these ring-shaped dimples on the base of our bowls and plates doesn’t just retain their non-slip quality, but also helps to convey important messages about the way that glass circulates between people as it’s made, used and recycled for further use, and about the connections it makes between people in this process.
