Yoav Kotik is an Israeli designer who uses metal bottle caps (remember those?) to make beautiful chandeliers, jewelry, sculpture and other whimsical goodies.

By bending, folding, cutting and pressing he changes them from their original use into things of beauty.

The designer refers to terminating their purpose. His designs are enhancing the discarded trash of found material.

Implications - As individuals are becoming more 'green' and eco-conscious, designers and companies are starting to create more items to show their support of the eco movement. Individuals want to show off their environmental status, with designers providing a means to do so by creating fashions that recycle previously used items to incorporate eco consciousness into everyday life.
