We have no influence on the colours and shapes, we depend on what the factory have. We choose the best pieces and turn them into a musthave products. We like to keep the shapes and colours, that's why we don't melt them. We put as little energy into it, we think this is the best thing you can do for the environment. It is a great challenge and every piece is unique!
Excavated lumps of industrial plastic waste, translated into a unique and marbled range of accessories for in- and outdoor. They are fascinated by the unique 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.
They select the most iconic creatures and at the same time they look as a sculptors what they 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 piece is cut it open.
Therefor every piece is unique and pieces will never be the same. Some plastic lumps are suitable as a side table, other ones as a candle holders, vessels, mirrors or a wall piece. They love to be the curator of this waste material.
This project is a further development of the graduation project of Ruben; Organic Factory in 2010
