While the simple tables look like they’re made from Terrazzo tile, they actually are made from industrial plastic by-product shards. Diverting waste from a landfill and looking cool, and serving a purpose? Seems like a good combination to us. Great example of stylish up-cycling. $345.
Locally Sourced Materials
Sourced from Detroit area automotive and toy factories, the table surface is made of 100% post-industrial plastic scraps, which were intercepted before reaching a landfill. Each surface is made from 7.5 lbs. of plastics that would otherwise be contributing to our growing waste problem.
Post-industrial plastic is typically mixed together to create a tough gray plastic used for industrial purposes. By sorting and blending these plastics by hand, Thing Thing edits together a pallette of bright colors to create a truly unique statement side table.
