Xavier Loránd Uses Coffee Waste for an Expressive Collection

Xavier Loránd's upcycled coffee-made furniture boasts a rich texture and a sculptural exterior. The designer builds on the concept of zero-waste by collecting coffee grounds from cafes near his studio. The Mexico City-based creative, thus, comes up with the Nero side table and stool. A mixture that is composed of coffee waste and binding materials — plant-based bio-resin in this case, is cast in a mold.

The upcycled coffee furniture is a testimony to Xavier Loránd's "love [...] for coffee and everything it represents." The piece also contributes to the movement toward sustainable production. As a bonus, the Nero side table and stool are not only eco-conscious and expressive. Their silhouettes also have a very design-driven appearance that fosters a unique opportunity for visual impact.
