Using 3D Printing technology, customized lids are created that can be clipped or screwed onto standard jars, tin cans and bottles to create new and personal objects.




Alexandra Kharakoz from the UK and Chak Ming Sin from Hong Kong also received similar awards for an interactive sonic sculpture and a sustainable method of regulating building temperature respectively.

Says Be Open, "The Awards are a core part of both London's premier annual design event and the philosophy of Elena Baturina, founder of BE OPEN. 'The reason I am fascinated in design is that it has the potential to change the world around us, for the better,' she said. 'These winning works are fascinating examples on improving on what we have and I am delighted that we are able to give them a worldwide platform through BE OPEN.'"
