Studio HAK’s Terrazzo-Like Debris Series Is Made From Plastic and Concrete

One man’s trash is another man’s furniture. The Debris Furniture Series by Hakmin Lee from Studio HAK was designed in collaboration with Amore Pacific and Oaah Agency and manufactured by Dcrete. It is inspired by GPGP, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a collection of marine debris in the Pacific Ocean. To raise awareness about plastic waste recycling, Hakmin turned empty cosmetic bottles returned by customers as part of Amore Pacific’s Green Cycle campaigns into flakes and mixed them with UHPC concrete. The end result is a material with a terrazzo-like pattern, which Hakmin used to create the Debris furniture series consisting of a bench, a side table and a stool.
