Luxury appearance: ISH collection by Matteo Fogale and Laetitia De Allegri

London designers Matteo Fogale and Laetitia De Allegri designed ISH, a new collection of furniture and tableware made from recycled post-industrial waste materials. For this collection, waste fibers were mixed with resin binders to create three different sheet materials that look like luxury stone.

The duo used three composite materials made by US company Iris Industries. Slate-ish is made from laminate that is compressed then split and spliced to create slate-like sheets. Denimite is made from scrap denim fibers. Meanwhile, Marblus is made from white cotton/polyester, bound by resin and then sanded to look like blue or white veined Carrara marble. The materials were used to create shelving, seating, side tables and tableware.
