Toasted Furniture is a project that combines innovation, design and ecology. Everyday waste plastics (for example the packaging of cleaning products) is recycled with the help of an innovative and simple device, ‘the toaster’, to obtain durable waterproof plastic panels, which are the basis for the manufacture of furniture.
The products are durable and resistant to moisture and dirt. Each piece of furniture is unique, as every panel is unique. The furniture is simple, the emphasis is on the material and patterns and functionality, so that each product serves its purpose. All products can also be ‘re-melted’ into new plastic sheets, as they are made of only one type of material (HDPE- high density polyethylene), or disassembled and assembled into a new product.

Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making.
The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
