In an effort to help solve the current plastic problem, Plastic Whale and Vepa launched Plastic Whale Circular Furniture on the 22nd of February: high-end office furniture that is made from Amsterdam Canal Plastic.

The debut collection consists of a boardroom table, a chair, lamps and acoustic wall panels. Part of the proceeds will be invested in local initiatives across the world that tackle the plastic soup problem.

Plastic soup is a growing global problem. This year another 8 billion kilos of plastic waste will enter the world’s rivers, lakes and oceans, creating a hazard to sea life and humans. We have two options: do nothing or do something.

At Plastic Whale and Vepa Project Furniture we’ve decided to do something. Joining forces to turn a problem into a solution: Plastic Whale Circular Furniture.


Plastic Whale Circular Furniture is created following the full principles of circular production and design. So besides the recycled Amsterdam Canal plastic, we also make optimal use of other ‘waste streams’ at Vepa’s factory, including recycled steel for in our chairs and residual fabrics for the chair’s cushioning.

Nothing goes to waste. At the end of its life cycle, we even take your product back from you. And pay you for it, because we’ll be using it as raw material in new products.
