High Density: Recycled Plastic Housewares

High Density is a set of housewares created through the reuse of discarded plastics.

Through a process of melting and moulding, post-consumer plastics become the raw material for useful and beautiful household products, such as tables, bowls, soap dishes, lamps and wall hooks. By establishing a simple approach to upcycling locally discarded plastic, High Density empowers makers and artists to re-think their materials in line with sustainable practices.
