After lunch? A nice coffee. Afterwards? The cup.
Wednesday, March 2nd 2011. We have just passed lunchtime and in the Italian way I am having my espresso (to try to avoid an unwanted nap) and I was just reading a very interesting book in Italian "Design Sostenibile, Oggetti, sistemi e comportamenti" by Paolo Tamborrini for Electra and this project came out and it's perfect for this time of the day.
In 2003 Lavazza, a major on coffee machines and coffee in general, developed this project that I think it's sustainable design at its extreme. You use a product and you eat it! The best way of recycling!
The project was carried out by Designer Enrique Luis Sardi together with the team at the Lavazza Training Centre and Cataldo Parisi, head chef of the confectioner's kitchen at Number 10 San Tommaso.
The cup is made of pastry and covered with a special icing sugar, which works as insulator and makes the cup waterproof, allowing you to use the cup and then appreciate its taste! Yummy and Sustainable! Molto Bene!
