PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

YOUR SMILE IS OUR SUCCESS, GET READY TO BE SURPRISED!

Re-Bottle Lamp

The Re-Bottle Lamp is probably one of the most sustainable pieces of furniture available. With the supplied kit you can transform bottles of your favourite drink into an exquisite pendant lamp. This model can be used with almost all small glass bottles such as Desperados, Heineken, Grolsch and many more. We have a black and a white edition.

Modular Steel Marble Track

This one of a kind marble track is made out of stainless steel. The steel tracks can be connected by plastic plug-ins. The toy is designed to give the user unlimited freedom in experimenting. You are able to build everything, in any direction you choose. There are two starter editions: a Basic set, including a complete set of tracks and a Medium set which has an added extension namely the marble elevator. There are all kinds of other extensions available for this marble track from the clip-on cycloon to the switch. This marble track is a project commissioned by Serious Marbles.

Bamboo Flower Pot

The Bamboo Flower Pot is the most natural way for one to grow a plant, as it was created by nature itself. Nature produced its own solution allowing  your plant to grow into another plant! This durable flower pot will not damage  the environment, but instead adds to the surroundings the potted plant is found in. The bamboo pot will look amazing with every flower or plant.

The best thing is that the flower pot is made out of waste material of the Tropical Hangout, which makes it even more sustainable and ‘green’!
