Furniture made from the company's own waste.

What better way to educate your visitors and own employees than tangible products made from your own waste? In this way waste treatment company AVR could show what is possible with the waste streams they collect, sort and recycle.

Tangible outcome of an abstract process

As experts in plastics recycling we pushed our skills to go bigger and 3D-print a set of stools, a bar table and a reception desk from recycled PET bottles, which are placed in the entrance hall of the new AVR building at their Rotterdam location. The shapes of PET-bottles are integrated in the structure of the tables, which can be discovered through a glass plate. On this project we collaborated with our friends from Van Plestik on the big scale 3d printing and with Planq who produced the seating for the stools from recycled jeans.

Please have a seat during your visit at AVR!
