With an eye on a greener world, and a love for the common object, Harry Allen turned his attention to the aluminum can for a show during the 2008 ICFF. The designer witnessed the can's useful storage capacity and handsome form first hand as he used them for storage in his studio workshop. Later he pondered the fact that much energy went into these disposable containers. The Cluster Series is an attempt to reclaim this energy by developing a unique collection of organization, container, and lighting designs. The cans are molded together in useful cluster formations and then coated with a truck bed liner, a durable, low VOC (environmentally-friendly), plastic coating that renders
them waterproof and durable.
