Plastic Whale is the first professional plastic fishing company in the world. A social enterprise with a mission: to make the world's waters plastic-free and create value from plastic waste. They do this by creating social awareness of the problem, but above all by taking action with as many people as possible and by fishing plastic. Until now, Plastic Whale has fished more than 200,000 PET bottles from the water, which are then upgraded to high-quality products, including boats, to fish for more plastic and produce high-quality design furniture.
The Plastic Whale Circular Furniture, high-end furniture made from fished plastic from the Amsterdam canals, was launched in collaboration with Vepa. In the meantime, a Plastic Whale franchise has already been started which is emptying the port of Rotterdam.
The high end collection consists of a boardroom table, a chair, lamps and acoustic wall panels. LAMA Concept is responsible for the design of the collection. Circularity is central and the whale served as a source of inspiration. The plastic soup is a big threat for this fascinating mammal. Characteristic elements of the whale have been translated into the designs. Think, for example, of the look and feel of the characteristic skin, the adipose tissue and the impressive skeleton.
