The fine folks at Studio Verissimo have figured out what to do with all of those plastic spoons we throw away: make furniture.
Yep. That’s a table made of recycled plastic spoons, aluminum, and glass. It comes in three sizes. While red is the most eye-catching of spoons used to construct this furniture, white and black are also available.
And what accessory goes perfect with a table made of recycled spoons?
A lampshade made of recycled spoons, of course! This item comes in red, white and black. Two sizes are available. I can’t figure out why the spoons don’t get melted by the light bulb.
I can’t help but think of how cool this furniture would be in a coffee shop…
I’m all for making furniture and other items out of recycled materials. What’s next? A bookshelf made of used CD jewel cases? Housing made from reconstituted newspapers? Or maybe just spoons recycled to be used as spoons.
If a line of clothing can be made out of recycled cigarette butts, nothing is impossible.
