These Glowing Chairs and Tables Are Made Out of Recycled Plastic

A designer figures out how to make new pieces and not feel guilty about it

These pieces from furniture maker Kim Markel are made out of recycled glasses frames, bottles, lunch trays, and other such plastic things, and look like they're made out of recycled plastic, but they also simultaneously look really nice. With the collection, which Markel calls Glow, she wanted to design pieces that she "can still feel good about," by not using new materials.
