Ineke Hans' Black Beauties Recycled Plastic Furniture
Dutch designer Ineke Hans has the ingenuity of material and eye for engaging aesthetics that make for seriously clever and beautiful furniture. Her line of Black Beauties recycled plastic chairs and desks for kids are sleek but kid-centric, in a surprising black rather than the usual bright pastels.
The recycled plastic pieces are functional (chairs and desks) and playful (jump ropes and toy cars). The Black Beauties line debuted in 2001, so be sure to check out her more recent and equally as wonderful work.
