Toasted Furniture is a project that combines innovation, design and ecology. Everyday waste plastics (for example the packaging of cleaning products) is recycled with the help of an innovative and simple device, ‘the toaster’, to obtain durable waterproof plastic panels, which are the basis for the manufacture of furniture.
The products are durable and resistant to moisture and dirt. Each piece of furniture is unique, as every panel is unique. The furniture is simple, the emphasis is on the material and patterns and functionality, so that each product serves its purpose. All products can also be ‘re-melted’ into new plastic sheets, as they are made of only one type of material (HDPE- high density polyethylene), or disassembled and assembled into a new product.
