Although PLASTICS were invented long before 1800, it was not until 1907, with the invention of Bakelite, to become a common good. Bakelite was the first synthetic PLASTIC material not derived from living matter and therefore available for cheap mass production.
Who would have ever thought this invention would have led to the disastrous situation we live in today? Plastics seem to have ruined the world!
Yet plastics are harmless as they are wonderfully recyclable.
This floor lamp, deliberately designed in the 1907 style proves that recycled plastics can be as luxurious as any other material.
