Dirk van der Kooij Meltingpot Side Table
The meltingpot table plays a keystone role in Dirk Vander Kooij’s approach to circular and sustainable design. A relentless prototyper, the meltingpot process fuses Dirk’s many experiments into a single, ever-changing landscape. By way of a house-developed press, discarded chairs, vases, cabinets and more are affectionately remoulded into indestructible tables.
The process has come to envelope a range of synthetic sources: CD’s, lawn furniture and agricultural tubing (to name a few). Stoic in design, a single slab atop a conical base serves to plainly showcase the unlikely ubermaterials. By exposing their texture, unmanipulated, Dirk reintroduces the plastics as truthful and autonomous.
Available in a range of three sizes and four colours, the meltingpot sidetable happily serves as statement or punctuation.
