Natural RvR Chair


RvR Chair This RvR Chair is an elementary and therefore ageless design. The Chubby Chair formed the basic principle, except now it will be in one piece. A Chubby in one piece has been a cherished wish of us for a long time and with the new robot arm we are now capable of moving the Chubby directly from the production plate into the mould where it gets its ultimate form. The result is a beautifully layered line pattern of intertwining legs and armrests - someone said similar to an Escher drawing. Moreover, the interplay of lines reveals how the chair is made.

Black Changing Vase


Changing Vase. We made these vases from scraps of plastic, melted down and built up in layers by a robotic arm. Each Changing Vase is a deliberately distorted take on the profile of a traditional vase. The result is a unique perspective that changes depending on where the viewer stands.

The vases are created using leftover granules, shredded recycled plastics, from other products. We are already using waste material for our products, but there are always little bits of material left over. Throwing the material away is a waste of resources. Besides that, the material’s attractive earthly colors are an asset.

Melting Pot (Side) Table It just takes once adding too little raw material while producing an Endless chair to end up with a wastrel. A lot of waste is also left over after testing periods for new products. We realized that this was a unique material. Such big chunks clean and recycled plastic each with its own history, identity and color pattern, it is hard to find anywhere. With that in mind, we designed the Melting Pot. Like a true chef de cuisine, we melt big chunks of chair or table into very stylish tables. The material that emerges is so dense that it practically looks and feels like marble. The form of the Melting Pot side table is elementary, sturdy and practical. The table is made of a massive cone that perfectly fits the likewise massive round table top. Quite beautiful patterns of color emerge during the production process; no two specimens are the same.
