Because alcoholism is more acceptable when done under the auspices of prolific recycling, the Netherlands family behind Maglova upcycles booze bottles into useful products from dishware to lighting, an idea lighted upon when they were one day unable to locate a receptacle that "could contain a good drink of water", and logically decided to "try and cut a wine bottle". A few categories of goods:
Glasses: Stemmed wine glasses are made from an inverted Bordeaux, a Grolsch has been morphed into a sort of chalice, and there's a snifter that in a previous life actually held Brandy, until she was all like "The Boy Is Mine", and it
freaked out and took off.
Lamps: Helping people get lit all over again is everything from a bottle of Bombay Sapphire (now operating as the shade and base for an adjustable desk lamp), to a flex-necked number whose shade's made from a Heineken, and whose base is a vino container.
Dishes: Flattened Grolsches become ashtrays, Champagnes are cut in half, flattened, then fused into serving plates, and change dishes are constructed from vessels that once contained "artesian water", an idea lighted upon when somebody was unable to locate water, and said "let's try to cut a hole in the ground".
