coffee table collection 34ND1

Designer: Emilė Kaškauskaitė

34ND1 - is a collection of functioning coffee tables whose main material is car glass. Every year in Lithuania about 50-60k tons of old cars is dismantled. Of which about 30% (15-18 k. t.) are unuseful waste like plastic, rubber, glass, car interior parts, and others. In one car there is about 45kg of glass. Because of its special structure, it can't be thrown away in general-use containers. It must be handed over to a specialist waste disposal service. On most occasions, there is a charge for it, so in many cases, huge quantities fall into storage, outskirts, or are simply shattered. Because of that, I decided to use car glass for my project and give it an opportunity to live a second life.
