bottle-up 



the foundation bottle-up is a company that gives waste glass
(derived from the hospitality industry on the island Zanzibar) new life.

i gained my master’s degree Integrated Product Design at the
Delft University of Technology with the bottle | brick project for
foundation bottle-up: using waste glass cullet as aggregate replacement
in building bricks for the local community. 

in 2018 i’ve been managing the foundation on the island, both pushing 
the sales of the bottle-up accessories, as well as discovering the steps
to scale up business for the bricks.
