Eco-friendly, sustainable designs are all the rage, and IKEA is making it all their own by creating kitchen cabinets made entirely of plastic bottles and recycled wood. The Kungsbacka units use 25 water bottles and were designed in collaboration with Swedish studio Form Us With Love. The cabinets are of a sleek black color and, best of all, come with the signature affordable IKEA prices.

Form Us With Love’s CEO Jonas Pettersson tells dezeen that the collection highlights the re-usability of different items:

“A plastic bottle is not waste; it is a resource. Most importantly, this kitchen proves that these materials can be used for household goods in large-scale production…We have to challenge the excuses for not using waste as a resource by showing how to best put these materials back into production, making affordable democratic products that will last.”
