Melting pot, Dirk van der Kooij

Tables

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 we collected left over materials, each and every one with its own history, color and pattern. This left over material goes into a ‘melting pot’. Just like a chef would prepare a meal, we prepare the Melting Pot Table. The result: a bold and stylish table with magnificent patterns and colors, and not one is the same.

The origin of the products – old toys, vhs video tapes – are visible in the pattern of the table top. The conical hole in the table top fits perfectly onto the cone shaped foot. A strong connection without any additives.
