Discipline: Professional Concept

Dye It Yourself is a proposition to redefine a boundary of mass production and arts and crafts using unique porous plastics. Using molding, these plastic tables are mass-produced and can be dyed with natural dyes by the users in their own unique way. By using natural dyes such as safflower, cherry blossom and Japanese indigo, beautifully variegated and shaded colors can transform the plastic’s uniform surface, giving it an attractive look that resembles textiles. What we wanted to design through this project is precisely the restructuring of the relationship between the mass production concept and the user.
