the Plastic mine
Factory overproduction plastics translated into elegant and striking circulair home accessories!
These bookends give your books a helping hand and an i-catcher in your home. Like soft stones that have been cut throuh with a steel baseplate in the colors: pink or lilac.
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.
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.
