Second Nature — Vases

Blue Cycle
Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation


Furniture of a sustainable future!

In this project, The New Raw joined forces with BlueCycle to tackle marine plastic pollution. The first fruit of this collaboration is the next generation of Second Nature furniture series, initially conceived and launched under the auspices of BlueCycle and the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation.

The vases are digitally crafted from upcycled marine plastic. Through robotic 3D printing, we give a second life to previously dumped plastic, proposing affordable and sustainable solutions in a wide range of designs and colours.

All our products can be customized and are 100% circular.



Plastic is a major contributor to the marine pollution. However, living in urban regions, we tend to forget about our dependence on the sea that is related to food and oxygen supply.


Second Nature seeks to create a change by designing a series of furniture that raise awareness for sustainability and connect its users to this major environmental problem through their narrative.

Inspired by the marine environment the designs possess a trinity between the pillars of sustainability, ergonomics and strong storytelling.
