A second life for plastic.
A shared vision of less landfill waste & sustainable design, Floyd x Thing Thing gives a second life to locally sourced plastic waste. Together, we’ve reimagined The Floyd Side Table. Each surface from this limited edition series is handmade in the Thing Thing studio – measured, blended, and polished – and is truly one of a kind.
Locally Sourced Materials
Sourced from Detroit area automotive and toy factories, the table surface is made of 100% post-industrial plastic scraps, which were intercepted before reaching a landfill. Each surface is made from 7.5 lbs. of plastics that would otherwise be contributing to our growing waste problem.
Post-industrial plastic is typically mixed together to create a tough gray plastic used for industrial purposes. By sorting and blending these plastics by hand, Thing Thing edits together a pallette of bright colors to create a truly unique statement side table.
Molded & Polished
The table is finished by hand-sanding and polishing the surface to reveal a smooth top — while the underside is left with a lightly textured detail, highlighting the unique manufacturing process and use of recycled plastics.
