Design collective Penda constructed a public art installation made of over 17,000 recycled plastic bottles attached together to create a ‘wave’ shape inspired by the Coca-Cola logo.

The piece, called Cola-Bow, consisted of bottles collected by a joint initiative of universities around Beijing and Coca-Cola China. The initiative gave people a bottle of Coke for every ten empty bottles that they brought to a designated recycling area. The installation was set up at the Student Beijing Design Exhibition.
