Walking around this year’s Dutch Design Week [1], we almost missed these cute paper vessels made from recycled receipts by Noor Nuyten [2]. Each paper cup is made from a used receipt roll that has been coated with water-based glue. Nuyten’s “Desk Role” line is perfect for holding small items that otherwise might get lost – such as paper clips, pins, rubbers bands and coins.

Noor Nuyten is an artist living and working in Brussels who shows at Upstream Gallery [3] and the Hisk Art Institute [2] in Ghent. Her Desk Role vases turn everyday waste materials into functional art pieces. It’s a fantastic DIY [4] design that is easy, cheap and eco-friendly.
