From bottle caps to creative “building” boards.

With a deep desire to transform waste to something beautiful and useful – that’s how it all started. From 1.5 tons of various plastic waste, we’ve created recycled plastic boards that serve a new purpose. They are safe for health and fully recyclable once again.

The recycled boards for our new showroom were made in workshop in the heart of Prague, Czech Republic /// The boards are fully recyclable & their production took almost 2 months The boards are 100 × 100 cm in size and 1 cm thick. Each board weighs around 12 kg /// Some boards look like terrazzo, some like marble and others like a river or stone /// The boards are made from plastic waste that is labelled as safe for humans

Each board is unique, you won’t find two alike!

The design of the boards was created by mixing eight different colours. /// Various grinds and regranulates were used in the process. /// The waste material came mainly from the automotive, construction and furniture industry from their discarded productions that were never used. /// Milk and soda caps, shampoo bottles, plastic boxes and lids were also utilised.

6 colours & more than 8 types of waste

RED = caps from soda and milk bottles collected from cafés in Prague center /// CREAM/BEIGE = plastic bags and pieces of plastic furniture /// TRANSPARENT = plastic wraps and bags /// ANTHRACITE = shipping boxes /// BLACK = defective automotive components and other industrial waste /// WHITE = plastic cartons and discarded medical containers, various cosmetic products
