Name: Side Table
Designer: Floyd and Thing Thing
Price: on request
To prove that good things do come out of adversity, two Detroit-based entities, sustainably-minded furniture brand Floyd and innovative manufacturing studio Thing Thing, team up to reimagine Floyd’s signature Side Table. Taking Thing Thing’s approach of using intuitive design to give post-industrial plastics another life, the limited edition table features a one-of-a-kind handmade surface, made completely from locally sources plastic waste.
The two colourways are Cake, a bright white high-density polyethylene with multicoloured flecks created by toy factory scraps, and Galaxy, a black polypropylene surface with colourful flecks sourced from automotive factory scraps. Each surface is measured, blended and polished by hand in the Thing Thing studio and paired with Floyd’s powder-coated steel legs, which are easily assembled and the foundation to all of the firm’s pieces.
