VENEZIA Recycled Plastic Coffee Table
Low table with 3 TIPTOE 43 cm legs and a round tabletop, Ø 80 cm, made from 100% recycled and recyclable plastic – yes, this tabletop was 100 yogurt pots in its first life!
TIPTOE’s mission is to make sustainable furniture, well-designed, well-made, and build to last. In line with these values, TIPTOE has spent several months putting together this collection of tables and shelf units in recycled plastic, designed with the future of furniture firmly in mind.
The aim is to demonstrate that it is possible to design objects in recycled plastic that combine beauty and timeless style and be long-lasting. The challenge was to go beyond mere recycling and to create extraordinary items that make us completely forget the previous use of the plastic from which they are made!
Almost unbelievable: it takes around 100 yogurt pots to produce the top for a VENEZIA table. This explains the tabletop’s white coloring. The collected plastic waste is reduced to chips and then pressed – without any binding agent. The burst of colors, gold or silver, come from the label fragments, which also give clues about its previous incarnation. The VENEZIA is a nod to Terrazzo, the celebrated tiles, also traditionally made from cast-offs of other bits of mineral waste. Each VENEZIA table is unique and has its own individual history of plastic given a second life through recycling.
The point of this collection was to radically change the initial lifespan of the raw material. To move from a product used for an extremely short, temporary period (yogurt pots or packaging) to a valuable, solid item. The tables and shelf units in the collection are long-lasting and designed to be useful for several generations. It’s a continuous cycle: the transformation of existing material, which itself can be further recycled when it is no longer used.
Care: The tabletops are resistant to stains and to moderate heat. Recycled plastic is a noble material that requires due care. To clean your table or shelf unit, simply wipe with a soft and slightly damp cloth. They are sensitive to certain chemical substances such as solvents, thinners, and strong detergents. Spills of water, wine, or soft drinks, should be cleaned up quickly.
