Although the name refers to the considerable thickness of the top, the object sports at the same time an unexpectedly light weight and ease of handling, thanks to a clever use of materials. The gently sketched-out base is a testament to TOOU’s renewed commitment to pay greater attention to the environment since it is made of eco-plastic, a compound of recycled organic waste materials with an extremely low environmental impact. The sober, refined colors of both the top and the thin closing base, in black and dark brown, match perfectly with the vibrant textures of the eco-plastic body, available in two natural shades: Eco white and Eco light brown. We consider Thick Top as a first, important step towards an increasingly eco-conscious design with the lightest possible impact on our Earth.
