If you're a fan of bottled soda, the green-tinted glass filled with tiny air bubbles might look familiar to you. When those thick glass bottles from Coca-Cola can no longer be recycled and reused, Japanese studio Nendo upcycles them into the modern tableware you see here.

The collection, aptly named Bottleware, is created completely from Coca-Cola's iconic 1916 "contour bottles," tinted in the company's trademark "Georgia Green," which are continually collected, cleaned, and refilled in many countries. When the bottles reach the end of their lifespan, Nendo turns them into bowls and dishes that mimic the clean lines and textures of the original bottle.
