In the market for sustainable side tables, Ayush Kasliwal's reimagined Bowl table stands out. The piece boasts a chic and minimalist design that promises easy integration into any home interior—from the more Boho style dwelling to the slickly contemporary interior.
The Indian designer was creative with material use when building the sustainable side table—a combination of coffee waste and recycled plastic was used to bring the furniture piece to life. Ayush Kasliwal completed the Bowl table for Mater whose CEO and founder stated that "[they] are excited that [they] can now offer [their] Bowl table in both a sustainable version in mango wood and a circular version in [their] waste composite Mater Circular Material." The Mater Circular Material is essentially a process that the brand uses to combine fibrous industrial waste and recycled plastic binders.
