meltingpot | dining double base

The meltingpot table plays a keystone role in Dirk Vander Kooij's approach to circulair and sustainable design. A relentless prototyper, the meltingpot process fuses Dirk’s many experiments into a single, ever-changing landscape. By way of a house-developed press, discarded chairs, vases, cabinets and more are affectionately remoulded into indestructible tables.

The process has come to envelope a range of synthetic sources: CD’s, lawn furniture and agricultural tubing (to name a few). Stoic in design, the monumental meltingpot double base is comprised of a single slab resting atop two concial supports. Synthetic contents are exposed plainly, reintroducing the material as truthful and autonomous.

The meltingpot double base is available in five sizes: 240, 320, 360, 420 or 480cm long. Respectively, the tables weigh 160, 200, 220, 247 and 305 kgs. A truly colossal reimagining of waste, the double base assumes the role of both material repository and archive.

The mentioned price is for the 240 x 110cm multi-colored version.

lead time: every piece is unique and production will take approx. 4-6 months.
