Plasticiet originated from a romantic vision and passion for material development within the topic of sustainability. Its founders Marten van Middelkoop and Joost Dingemans seize a waste stream - plastic waste - and transform it into a building block for the future made of all kinds of products: from old buckets to garden furniture.
Doing this we cut into a global problem and find a way to process large volumes of this problematic material to a building block with a visual language that almost everyone recognises; we are inspired by the primal beauty of natural stone. Plastic is the gold of the present and we show that by transforming this waste stream into the raw material for the next economy.
Marten and Joost are two product designers who stationed themselves in Rotterdam in 2013. They both graduated from their Product Design studies at the Willem de Kooning Academy after which they kickstarted Plasticiet in 2018.
