Plasticiet is a building material that comes straight out of Rotterdam with the hard looks of natural stone but made from discarded plastics. In the M4H area we produce the material utilising a mix of techniques used by industry and craftsmen. Our rock-like material is applicable in furniture making, interior design, displays and purely decoratively. This way we contribute to the longevity of plastic before it ends up in waste burning facilities.
Behind this initiative hide Marten Middel and Joost Dingemans, two product designers who based themselves in Rotterdam in 2013. Together they graduated from their Product Design studies at the Willem de Kooning Academy after which they kickstarted Plasticiet in 2018.
Hereunder you can find a collection of personalised projects in collaboration with Plasticiet.
