Design and manufacturing of products from recyclable materials

Circular Design focuses on designing and manufacturing products from recyclable materials. Our expertise primarily covers different types of plastics. By recycling a variety of (plastic) materials, Circular Design aims to reduce its ecological footprint to a minimum. Circular Design also wants to raise awareness among third parties (companies and public authorities) that materials considered as ‘waste’ do not always need to be destroyed, but rather can be reused as resources. Think of, for example, reusing old central heating pipes, shampoo bottles, obsolete or outdated billboards, old crates, reels, caps and plastic garden furniture, as well as synthetic turf pitches and even the residual yarn remaining from their production.

Services

Circular Design advises its clients with respect to processing and reusing plastics and other types of (waste) materials. Circular Design can help transform them to new (design) products, such as lamps, vases and seating elements. We are committed to cradle-to-cradle usage of materials.

In addition to complete processing and reusing your materials, you can also opt to mix them with another recyclable resources. This scenario can be chosen if, for example, your materials themselves are not suitable to create new products from, but can be used if another recyclable resource is added. The resulting finished product is a beautiful combination of recyclable materials and unique to you as a client, due to the incorporation of your waste material(s).

A good example is the usage of old jeans as a resource to create gorgeous lamps, with only their colour reminding of the original product.

All hard plastics from PE, PP, PE-PP, HDPE and LDPE product groups can be used as (recyclable) resources to create new finished products, for example:

  • Plastics from waste recycling facilities, sorted by product group and/or colour;
  • Residual waste from industrial manufacturing of plastics;
  • Plastics from scrapyards;
  • Plastics from companies ( crates, reels, billboards etc.).

New: The usage of bio-based resources, made from cane sugar, provides the same appearance as virgin materials.

Our Production Process

All of our products emanate pure Dutch Design and are manufactured in the Netherlands. We specialise in rotomoulded (i.e. rotational moulded) recyclable plastic products.

With rotational moulding, a mould is filled with plastic powder (usually polyethylene, i.e. PE, PP, PE-PP, HPPE or LDPE). The filled mould is then heated in a large furnace, with the mould rotating both on its horizontal and vertical axis. The plastic powder melts against the mould wall, thus taking the form of the mould. Subsequently, the mould must be cooled down. As soon as the molten plastic powder has solidified sufficiently, the new product formed is removed from the mould, allowing the process to repeat itself. The resulting finished product is seamless, retains its shape and can be given any imaginable colour.

Models and Products

You can choose from a large collection of ‘design’ lamps, chairs, seating elements, stools, vases and cabinets, or work with us to develop an exclusive product for you.

You can also engage us to produce your proprietary plastics, starting with a minimum order quantity of 50 pieces! Our Netherlands-based production will guarantee you first-class service, fast delivery and excellent value for money.
