Da Bean — A Café Project
Lap Yeung Jordan Hau
Da Bean—A Café Project is a collection of coffee shop products featuring playful illustrated narrations of a coffee bean character, Da Bean. The collection comprises take-away coffee cups, napkins and paper plates. These illustrations build a bridge between coffee culture and daily life by transforming the products from mere food and drink ware into something the customers could laugh at, play with or take away. By injecting more valuable meanings into the throwaways and encouraging collection of them, the illustrations also function as an environmental agent addressing the problem of over-disposal of food packaging.
