Designer Ulrike Jurklies created the TINGE table out of recycled scrap plastic.

Created from leftover materials from a plastic-coloring process, the TINGE table can be made to be any color. This upcycled side table features easy, customizable assembly. This table requires no tools or hardware for assembly as the pieces simply slot together. Different shapes and colors can even be mixed and matched to create a new look.

When making the TINGE, Jurklies was inspired by the materials that are ordinarily discarded when a plastic coloring machine is set up with a new dye. What makes this piece so compelling is its ability to catch and reflect light. The more the piece is customized with different shapes, colors and textures, the more interesting the piece becomes. The TINGE table is the first prototype piece in a larger series to be unveiled in October at Dutch Design Week 2017.
