This colorful side table designed by Hugo Ribeiro is embellished with differently hued plastic bags. Called CROKÉ, the wooden stool has layers on layers of crocheted plastic bags wrapped around its legs, leaving the pine table top exposed.

The otherwise simple structure is inspired by traditional Portuguese stools. It also has a hidden shelf that is easily accessed by shoving your hand through the strands. This secret storage can be used for items like clocks and books or other items you would prefer not to have in open daylight.

Hugo Ribeiro creatively used plastic bags, which one would normally throw out, to cover the corner table. This was also done to introduce "the art of crochet as a method and repetition."
