An eco-responsible approach
TIPTOE’s mission is to make sustainable furniture, well-designed, well-made and built to last. In line with these values, we have spent several months putting together this collection of tables and shelf units in recycled plastic, designed with the future of furniture firmly in mind.
Our aim is to demonstrate that it is possible to design objects in recycled plastic that combine beauty and timeless style as well as being long-lasting. The challenge we faced was to go beyond mere recycling and to create extraordinary items that make us completely forget the previous use of the plastic from which they are made!
The shelf of this white, recycled plastic shelf unit is made from approximately 100 yoghurt pots : this explains the board’s white colouring! The burst of colours, gold and silver, come from label fragments which also give us clues about its previous incarnation!
It’s actually a nod to Terrazzo, the celebrated mineral material, also traditionally made from cast-offs of other bits of mineral waste.
