TINGE: A Mix and Match Table Series Made From Scrap Plastic

Designer Ulrike Jurklies, of Dutch studio mo man tai, created a side table series inspired by leftover plastic material that’s generated when the color process machine is set up with a new dye. TINGE tables require no tools or hardware when assembled, instead the pieces have slots notched out where they easily fit together, letting you mix and match the pieces until you get the look you want.

The scrap plastic can be cut into all different shapes, offering up all kinds of table variations. And when the pieces are layered, it creates a cool visual effect with light, reflections, and shadows.

The first prototypes were done in the colors shown but more options could be available. The TINGE tables were produced by Zweko Optics, with the materials coming from Arla Plast.
