Pentatonic is a new furniture company, founded by ex-Global GM of NikeLab Jamie Hall and Johann Boedecker, who used to work at design company MiniWiz. The brand creates customizable furniture and, as of right now, has produced a chair, table and glassware.

The notable twist with this particular company is that all of their products are made entirely from recycled materials — specifically plastics, cans and, in the case of the glassware, smartphone screens. According to the brand, the reasoning behind this is simple: there’s too much consumption and — in order to combat it — there needs to be a wider re-use of some of our most discarded goods.

There’s also a patented modular system called AirTool, which basically means that you’ll be able to purchase individual parts to create furniture to your own specifications — the end goal being the ability to repair your own furniture by simply purchasing singular parts. You can purchase Pentatonic’s goods at its web store now.
