HEINEKEN WOBO: A Beer Bottle That Doubles as a Brick. the idea of turning waste into useful products came to life in 1963 with the Heineken WOBO (world bottle). Envisioned by beer brewer Alfred Heineken & designed by Dutch architect John Habraken, the “brick that holds beer” was ahead of its ecodesign time, letting beer lovers and builders alike drink and design all in one sitting. Sadly the idea stalled but still remains a lasting example in end-use innovation.
