The studio have no influence on the colours and shapes, they depend on what the factory have. They choose the best pieces and turn them into musthave products. The most pieces will be cut in two (by saw or CNC milling) and make these sides as smooth as possible to reveal the beauty that is hidden inside and for functionality. Iris & Ruben like to keep the shapes and colours as much as they are, that is why they do not melt them. To put as little energy into the plastic, they believe this is the best thing to do for the environment. It is a great challenge and therefore every piece is unique!!

 

our fascination

 

The studio is fascinated by the unique, irregular shapes and beautiful bright colours, found at a plastic processing factory. These organic shiny lumps triggered them to create must haves, which otherwise would have been thrown away. We select the most iconic creatures and colours and at the same time look as a sculptor what we can make out of it. Hence it is such a surprise what is hidden inside, creating an exiting moment when the marbled pattern reveals itself when the lump is cut it open. Therefor every piece is unique and they will never be the same. Some lumps are suitable as a side table, other ones as a candle holder or wall piece. 'We love to be the curators of this waste material!'

 

' Our fascination and urge to discover can be traced back into our motto; Don’t take the world for granted.”
By consciously deal with the sources, their surroundings and impact, we want to realise sustainable designs to cherish, which will last long and more importantly to start a conversation.'
