With City Cups we represent the city in an original and meaningful manner.
We immerse ourselves in the building’s history. Filtering the characteristic elements that we then convey to the cup design.
Looking at the city from a love of architecture and with an eye for detail.
The crowdfunding allows you to contribute to the restoration and repurposing of the BunkBed pilot bunker. It is used to research whether bunkers along the coast can be reappropriated as sustainable and camouflaged heritage accommodation.
The lamp and the clothes hanger are particularly special. These were made from reused reinforcement steel from a section of a demolished bunker from WWII.
The experiment revolves around the TwoTowel. A hand towel and dish towel in one, merging two functions normally used side by side. As a contributor, you ultimately directly influence the colour.
