Plastic or Wooden Furniture? Both, by Pelidesign

The amazing furniture project PlasticNature shows that it’s possible to fuse wood and injection-moulded plastic to create beautiful furniture. The craftsmen at Pelidesign believe that the two worlds “belong together – they are both utilitarian”. Incredibly, “the wooden legs actually ‘flow’ into the seat plank” through the plastic connecting parts. These furniture objects only appear solid – they’re actually clung together plastic and wooden pieces, by the means of a join similar to dovetail. PlasticNature doesn’t just prove the structure is sound, it also shows the aesthetic harmony between the two materials. Awesome furniture! Visit Pelidesign.
