PLET table by Reinier de Jong

Rotterdam designer Reinier de Jong has designed this low table with a surface made up of reclaimed strips of acrylic.

Called PLET, the perspex table-top is attached to solid oak feet by aluminium strips and appears to hover over the base.

The acrylic strips have different transparencies, colours and thicknesses making each table unique.

Here's a bit more information from the designer:


PLET table consists entirely of waste materials. Eighty different strips of reclaimed Perspex (PMMA) make up the translucent top which appears to be hovering above the solid oak wood base. The oak wood comes from a former dining table top. Traces of its previous life are visible in the plywood connection strip in the wood.

PLET is a low table which refers to Japanese interiors through its modest size and pure expression. The connective plywood strips in the wooden frame resonate in the aluminium strip which connects the frame to the top. The Perspex strips which make up the top have different thicknesses, colours and transparencies and making each PLET table unique. The space in which PLET table is put will affects the appearance because the light will make it look different every time.

    Nice exercise in recycled materials but as an object I don’t care for it. The effect of light on the top sounds interesting.

    like the material combination (reclaimed perspex etc),

  • esc

    the gap in the oak spline is very distracting….
