For those who love science fiction, Bottletop is the place to be. Not only their catchy name but also the unique overall concept is compelling. The British company has been stocking eccentric handbags and clutches made from sustainably produced materials since 2002. To further underline this attitude, sustainable raw materials were also used in designing the stores. Bottletop has come up with something extraordinary for the store concept, deciding to use a 3D printer for the entire interior design. It sounds crazy at first, but it is actually pretty damn cool. The 3D print used raw material filaments made of recycled plastic was created by an industrial printing robot from the manufacturer Kuka and is the first shop of its kind worldwide. The first permanent shop in London is stunning, with a futuristic look, an extravagant lighting concept and numerous projections across the walls. Another highlight is that the ceiling is made of the upper half of plastic water bottles while the floor is made of old car tires.

To top off the full sensory experience for customers, the store even has its own fragrance created by perfume designer Timothy Han. This makes it possible for customers to literally inhale the values for which Bottletop stands; social commitment such as supporting artisans, creating jobs in developing countries and sustainability on every level.
