Plastic Fantastic Furniture

21Sep06

How did I get on a design-fun-with-bottles craze this week? No idea but it wasn’t intentional. Nonetheless I had to pass on some fabulous furniture finds by British designer Malcolm Baker. Baker’s passion for refashioned materials give his pieces their eco-modern style.


If the Jetsons were midcentury modernists they would have loved this coffee table! Made using Smile Plastics‘s sheets of recycled polystyrene coffee cups.


The Kite Table achieves modernist style with a safari twist! Made using Smile Plastics‘s recycled plastic sheets from their Jazz collection.


The Ghost Table is exhibiting at Sustain Magazine’s booth at London’s 100% Detail design show that opens today. Made from locally sourced and certified wood and stainless steel.

The Fab Factor: Malcolm’s choice of using recycled, locally sourced and locally made materials for his masterpieces. Customers are even welcome to visit the workshop to watch the design process unfold.

NOTE TO READERS: There’s SO much more to share with you right now but [sigh] my thesis beckons so stay tuned! Much rather be with you but it will be worth the wait.
