Modern design for moms and dads is becoming ever more available, with the latest eye-catching addition coming from notNeutral. The Los Angeles-based commercial product company of creative group Rios Clementi Hale Studios teamed up with the green designers at Loll Designs to create the BB02 table and chairs.
Launched in April, the indoor-outdoor seating set is made of 100-percent recycled post-consumer high-density polyethylene. HDPE, as it’s often called, is a durable plastic made from recycled plastics like milk jugs and detergent bottles and a material frequently used by Loll Designs, the Minnesota-based modern outdoor furniture company that is manufacturing the BB02 pieces. The companies estimate that eight recycled milk jugs are used for every pound of weight in these tables and chairs. With the table weighing in at 51 pounds and the chairs at 20 pounds each, that’s 728 recycled milk jugs ending up as a table and two chairs rather than ending up in a landfill. That’s something to sit and think about.
