Dutch Designer Reinier de Jong has designed the PLET Table which consists entirely of waste materials. Eighty different strips of reclaimed Perspex (PMMA) make up the translucent top which appears to be hovering above the solid oak wood base. The oak wood comes from a former dining table top. The plywood connection strip in the wood are traces of its previous life.
PLET is a low table which refers to Japanese interiors through its modest size and pure expression. The connective plywood strips in the wooden frame resonate in the aluminium strip which connects the frame to the top. The Perspex strips which make up the top have different thicknesses, colours and transparencies and making each PLET table unique. The space in which PLET table is put will affects the appearance because the light will make it look different every time.
