Plastics, in all their various forms, are a quintessential element in the world of mass-production. objects can be made with the material efficiently and identically, while simultaneously maintaining relatively-low production costs. however, average consumers have begun shying away from the homogenous culture created by replicability. people want to be different: a trend clearly seen in the skyrocketing of products (computers, sneakers, etc.) that can be individualized by the buyer.

‘dye it yourself’ table soaking up safflower 



using nothing but color, a simple mass-produced table transforms into a one-off furniture element that showcases the individual expressions of its owner. takt project sees ‘dye it yourself’ as a proposition that can alter the relationship between product and consumer, bringing them both closer to a yet unseen horizon. the ‘dye it yourself’ furniture collection was presented at the any tokyo exhibition during tokyo design week 2015
