Plasticiet is a building material that comes straight out of Rotterdam with the hard looks of natural stone made from discarded plastics. In the M4H area we produce the material utilising a mix of techniques used in industry and by craftsmen. Our rock-like material can be applied 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.
