German furniture maker Pentatonic is making something out of the ordinary. By using trash materials from plastic to glass, they created new materials and made beautiful modern furniture out of it.

“Landfill into lifestyle; trash into treasure” is the vision of Pentatonic. They want to deal with human trash head on, but at the same time, will refuse to sacrifice even an inch of quality in their products. They can turn cracked smartphone glass into glassware and plastic bottles into high-end chairs with no problem. Mind you, there are no resins, toxins, additives and even glue used in making the new materials.

Their products are designed with interchangeable components; chairs can be converted into tables. Pentatonic also has a “buy-back” guarantee promising to pay customers for selling back the furniture if they don’t want it anymore.

For Pentatonic, it’s not just about recycling. It’s about encouraging the culture of circularity – recycling and turning waste into new products. With these products, it’s hard to argue how creativity and innovation can do wonders for mankind.
