Dutch designer Ruben Thier’s clever Organic Factory furniture is made from plastic waste and excess material salvaged from factory floors. To make these reclaimed wonders he sneaks in between shifts and uses the factories’ extruders and machines to turn out durable seats, benches and tables. Thier’s irregular and organic creations make the most from waste and use industrial machinery in a new way.
Instead of letting excess Polyethylene plastic drip on the floor, the Design Academy of Eindhoven designer collects it in crates that shape his recycled furniture. Each one of a kind piece comes with a serial number and the date, factory and machine used for its creation. Check out all of Ruben Thier’s creations at CrowdyHouse, a new design platform for crowdfundable projects.
