Plastic is everywhere. In our homes, in our offices, public spaces… We all became aware of avoiding single used plastic bags. Have you noticed that both small and large electrical appliances contain a certain amount of plastic?
Up to 40% of the weight of refrigerators is made of plastic. Electrical appliances play an important and often fundamental role in our daily lives. Their materials are high-quality and durable, a valuable resource that should not end up in landfill.
Is there a way to extend the product life-cycle and transform their purpose?
The tabletop of Frost Table is made of internal parts of discarded refrigerators, where the transparent drawers and the white interior are matched to create a unique nuance.
Each ecoBirdy product is born from the quest for social and environmental responsibility.
Frost Table, part of the Lounge Collection, combines functional design and sustainability.
The curvilinearly shaped, chromatically ethereal surface comes with an icy palette that recalls the initial cooling purpose of its source material, the layered texture matches the original scope of the recycled parts.
Metal is often coated with chemical components. In Frost’s case, no compromises were made. The leg is hand finished with natural wax, following an ancient technique that preserves steel authentically and ecologically.
Frost’s utilitarian design and elegant outline can fit in a variety of interior styles and furniture combinations. Every detail finds its purpose, and together with the well-studied proportions, it creates the sophisticated and versatile look that distinguishes Frost. It is available in three heights: coffee, salon or bistro table, and three patterns: Glacier, Snow, Mid-Grey.
Through Frost Table, ecoBirdy embraces the second life of discarded electrical appliances to create an evergreen design, a slim table that will sustain items as well as the contribution to a more sustainable future.
