Recycled plastic furniture by TYPO

A new brand is launching specialising in recycled plastic. TYPO, working in conjunction with Smile Plastics, is getting its show on the road with Replica, a versatile stool/side table

TYPO, set up by Alex Swain, is aiming at a more sustainable and customer-centric future, with a focus is on tackling waste. TYPO also wants to eliminate unwanted designs by using a pre-order model. Picture above: the Replica stool is made from 100 per cent recycled waste, including yoghurt pots

TYPO is a design venture that offers a new business model. With a pre-ordering system, TYPO ensures its products are made in small batches, minimizing waste and guaranteeing quality - an approach that's already gained traction in the fashion industry.

TYPO is also committed to collaboration and community - evident in partnerships with like-minded makers and production specialists. For instance, to celebrate Replica's launch TYPO's collaborated with Colours of Arley to produce a bespoke cushion made from recycled plastic, complementing the stool's design aesthetic.

Artworks will also be launched on the TYPO website in multiple drops throughout 2024.
