From plant-based bottles to forming a green packaging alliance with other industry leaders, Coca-Cola has been upping the ante when it comes to sustainability. Now the soda giant has even unveiled a stylish dinner table installation featuring a bevy of eco-friendly tabletop elements all encased in a prismatic, recycled glass dome. The exhibit, which is at Pier 94 in New York City – was put together for this year’s “Dining by Design” – a fundraising event benefiting DIFFA (Design Industry Foundation Fighting AIDS) – and is made entirely from repurposed materials including decor made from hand-blown, recycled Coca-Cola bottles and dinner plates made using glass municipal waste.

Designed and curated by leading set designer Stefan Beckman, the installation features a dome and table made of Lumicor R4 panels containing up to 60% certified recycled material and recycled aluminum, light fixtures made from hand-blown glass from upcycled Coca-Cola bottles, TafiPan-Eco flooring made from a NAUF particleboard combining 100% recycled wood residues, recovered post-consumer wood fibers and urea-free adhesives, salad plates by Fire & Light Originals made of crushed, recycled glass, and Ishizuka handmade recycled glass stemware from Japan.

“At Coca-Cola, sustainable packaging innovation is in our DNA,” said David Butler, Vice President, Global Design, The Coca-Cola Company. “We’ve consistently been on the leading edge of bringing consumer-driven, environmentally responsible packaging to the marketplace. Participating in ‘Dining by Design’ enables us to showcase the potential of packaging that is designed for recycling.”

Dining by Design” kicks off with a cocktail preview on Thursday, March 17 and opens to the public at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, March 18.
