A few years ago, the American architects Louise Harpman and Scott Specht started collecting disposable coffee lids, today owning the largest collection in the world with more than 550 coffee lids from around the world. Through the design of the Coffee Lids, the best example of disposable everyday objects, Louise Harpman and Scott Specht are documenting how brands are trying to differentiate themselves with creative packaging and imperceptible innovations, in a world ruled by unfettered capitalism.
