Updated: Jan 7, 2020
This is a project of dyeing plastic furniture. Dye It Yourself is a proposition to redefine the boundary between mass production and arts and crafts.
This project exploit the advantages of low cost, easily mass-produced plastic as a material, but leave enough room for people to imbue these pieces with their own personality.
Dye It Yourself is a series of tables and chairs made of a porous plastic composite. the material is frequently used in industrial applications, but is rarely found in consumer goods. By re-interpreting its porous characteristics, Takt project found it to be easily dyeable using natural means such as: safflower, cherry blossom, and japanese indigo.
