Everybody winds up with leftovers in the kitchen, but unlike the rest of us, American chemical company DuPont winds up with leftover counters. Designer Rabih Hage decided that these particular leftovers might make a good table.
Part of an exhibition at Milan Design Week titled Corian® Colour Evolution, the Leftovers Collection is comprised entirely out of scrap counter material. The result is irregular but striking furniture in flashy shades of green and yellow. Hage described the goal of his design experiment this way.
“I have always been fascinated by unused material or discarded cuts of stone, wood or metal whether chea or expensive. Reusing these materials as a luxury product and treating the off-cuts as something precious is my real motivation.”
