DCSG has created a furniture set made entirely from recycled and recyclable waste to give the impression of concrete.

Concrete is a furniture set consisting of one table and four stools. Made entirely from recycled and recyclable plastic waste, it is designed to bring personality and fit in effortlessly to the modern home.

The classic timeless form factor is inspired by 20th-century Modernist architecture in Southern Vietnam, and is combined with recycled plastic waste to strike a unique balance between the past, present and future of urban life.

Concrete is crafted using conventional woodworking techniques that only require structural reinforcement from wooden pins and fasteners, allowing it to be disassembled and recycled back into plastic boards after use.


This project has been longlisted in the sustainable design category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
