Ocean OC2: Beer kegs turned into Stunning Designs
Mater's latest addition to their Ocean series is the OC2 collection, the bottle-green version, created in collaboration with Carlsberg and a:gain.
Mater teamed up with Carlsberg, a leading Danish brewery, to give discarded beer kegs a new lease on life and help to reduce waste.
Once the kegs are collected at Carlsberg, they are sent to a:gain, which is responsible for cleaning and granulating the kegs.
