Irregular lumps of factory overproduction plastics, translated into unique and striking circular accessories for in- and outdoor.
We were fascinated by the unique shapes and beautiful bright colours of neglected lumps, found at a plastic processing factory. Where we select the most striking shapes and colours, while at the same time observe as a sculptor what we can make out of it. In the process of transformation, we cut the pieces by saw or mill it with CNC. Hence it is such a surprise to find out what is hidden inside, creating an exiting moment when the marbled pattern reveals itself when the two halves split.
To minimise any possible negative effect for the environment, we put little as possible energy into the lumps, when transforming them into new products. Ready to shine brightly as an unique shelf, candle holder, mirror or side table. Suitable for both in- and outside.
The larger lumps we use for side tables, cut by cnc a flat and smooth surface is created, so it is good to use as a table.
' 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.'

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 or colour 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!!
