Studio Thier and van Daalen
Purple Orange - no. 2 Plastic Shelf
the Plastic Mine - colour shelves by Studio Thier and van Daleen
Irregular lumps of factory overproduction plastics, translated into unique and striking circular accessories for in- and outdoor.
Studio Thier and van Daleen were fascinated by the unique shapes and beautiful bright colours of neglected lumps, found at a plastic processing factory. Where they select the most striking shapes and colours, while at the same time observe as a sculptor what they can make out of it. In the process of transformation, they cut the pieces by saw or mill it with CNC. Hence it is such a surprise to find out what is hidden inside, creating an exiting moment when the marbled pattern reveals itself when the two halves split.
To minimise any possible negative effect for the environment, the studio put little as possible energy into the lumps, when transforming them into new products. Ready to shine brightly as an unique shelf.
'Their fascination and urge to discover can be traced back into their motto; “Don’t take the world for granted.” By consciously deal with the sources, their surroundings and impact, we want to realise sustainable designs to cherish, which will last long and more importantly to start a conversation.'
