Perpetuating transience: enormous amounts of used plastics are used to make an indestructible table. Molten disposable plastic gets the sturdiness and strength of marble. Remains of recycled synthetic material is unique and actually too appealing to be called waste. That’s why Dirk van der Kooij collected left over materials, each and every one with its own history, color and pattern. This left over material goes into a ‘melting pot.’ The result: a bold and stylish table with magnificent patterns and colours, and not one is the same. (source: Dirk van der Kooij)
