Lineup by 3form: 100% Recycled Plastic Surface Panels
In 2008 3form launched their 100 Percent line—architectural resin panels made from 100% post-consumer recycled high density polyethylene—and since then they’ve continued to prove that high design really can be low impact. Lineup, introduced last Fall, is their latest addition to the 100 percent product line. It, too, is made of 100% recycled plastic (over 1,000 milk bottles in each panel, to be precise!), but instead of the mottled plastic designs of the earlier products, Lineup features striated colors that make the overall product much sleeker.
The panels can be ordered with either lengthwise and crosswise stripes, and the colorways (found here) are pulled from the colors of the plastic bottles from which they come showcasing, as Core77 put it, both their integration into the panel’s design elements “while simultaneously reminding the user of the material’s provenance.”
