(Excerpt) Interview with Nantapoom Chumpengphan : Frank Scott: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?. Nantapoom Chumpengphan : The goal was to create a fully recyclable product that also could reduce transportation and storage costs. A product that could be transported flat-packed and formed as and when needed. .Frank Scott: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?. Nantapoom Chumpengphan : What I discovered was that ecological sustainability is not about materials alone, but also the systems created around them, such as logistics, transportation and user accessibility. I wanted to create a product that was equal to what was already available but was also truly easily and cheaply recyclable. .Frank Scott: What are your future plans for this award winning design?. Nantapoom Chumpengphan : I am sure as with all designers, it would be good to see our designs being used. .Frank Scott: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?. Nantapoom Chumpengphan : It took about three weeks. .Frank Scott: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?. Nantapoom Chumpengphan : This design was conceived as part of a university project. .Frank Scott: Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?. Nantapoom Chumpengphan : At this stage it is only a concept design and would require a lot more research and development to create a finished viable end-product. .Frank Scott: What made you design this particular type of work?. Nantapoom Chumpengphan : I usually try to design for "Need" and design to solve problems. .Frank Scott: Where there any other designs and/or designers that helped the influence the design of your work?. Nantapoom Chumpengphan : I got my inspiration from old cask barrels which are formed from flat materials and home delivered milk bottles that are collected after use, washed and then refilled and sent out again for reuse. .Frank Scott: Who is the target customer for his design?. Nantapoom Chumpengphan : This design can be modified (materials, shape and size) to contain different contents; liquid or solid. So the target market is potentially everyone who shops for food and other goods. .Frank Scott: What sets this design apart from other similar or resembling concepts?. Nantapoom Chumpengphan : The design takes up minimal volume before it is filled when it is in its flat form, so more of these containers can be transported to a filling factory in fewer journeys. It is formed into a three dimensional container prior to filling so does not take up masses of warehouse space beforehand. And when the consumer (end-user) finishes with it, it can be disassembled/separated and crushed down and disposed of, taking up minimal space in a recycling bin. Traditional rigid bottles, jars, cans and tins take up the same volume whether they are full or not, and take up the same amount of space after they have been used. .Frank Scott: How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?. Nantapoom Chumpengphan : The "Compression Can" a.[ End of Excerpt: Read complete interview with Nantapoom Chumpengphan on Compression Can Drinks Can at ]
