Sustainability old

HDPE is made from 100% post-consumer content. It comes from sources like recycled milk jugs. These discarded plastics are then shredded into a pulp and compressed into a substrate suitable for milling. The HDPE is then milled into Hoek furniture at our shop in Brooklyn, New York.  4 Legs create a table that will last you a lifetime. If you're done with your Hoek then send the HDPE back to us and well insure the process begins again. Your returned legs are then re-shredded into a pulp and compressed again into a substrate that can be milled again. This process can be completed up to 10 times without losing any strength in the final product 

 

HDPE:

The legs and chassis are made from 100% post-consumer recycled HDPE plastic that would otherwise end up in landfills. HDPE has a superb strength-to-density ratio and is highly scratch-resistant, easy to wipe down, and very durable. Recycled HDPE has been widely used in exterior furniture, eco friendly building materials, and experimental designs. The new Hoek furniture line blends these amazing material characteristics with incredible ease of assembly and sleek design.
