Achttien is a collaboration between haring (frank stabel) and __voud (jan jacobs)



ACHTTIEN - is made entirely out of recycled plastics from different waste streams. Discarded plant pots, packaging and PET plastics get a new life as smile plastics*. Panels measure one by two meters with a nominal thickness of 2 centimeters. Laid out by hand, every panel has a unique composition and appearance.

ACHTTIEN - is a result of an ideological intention that led to a strict design methodology. The proces is based on and determined by a zero-waste principle. Determined by the dimensions and characteristics of the material,
the furniture’s proportions and dimensions are set to maximise the use of material and thus minimise waste and scrap components are efficiently cnc-cut and finished and assembled by hand.

ACHTTIEN - How an ideological intention, a rational deductive design process led to an uncontemplated architectural appearance.
