COASTERS

TABLE TOPS

For the late summer ‘17 opening of sustainable seafood restaurant Angela’s of Margate, UK, Weez & Merl crafted fourteen marble-like table tops in neutral-white with streaks, veins and wisps of dark green.


In order to mould sheets of recycled plastic large enough, a 1.5m x 1m bed wooden-frame hydraulic press was designed and built in the spring of 2017, using reclaimed materials - thanks to community project The Woodstore, Brighton.

Just over 200kg of waste LDPE plastic packaging was collected from Brighton and Hove businesses for the making of the table tops, all of which was either destined for landfill, incineration, or shipping abroad.
