Floyd partners to reintroduce side table


DETROIT – Floyd, a direct-to-consumer furniture manufacturing company, has partnered with Detroit manufacturing studio Thing Thing, which makes experimental design for exhibitions, collectors and consumers, to reintroduce its Floyd side table.

The company said each surface from the new limited-edition table series is handmade in the Thing Thing studio using locally sourced post-consumer and post-industrial materials.

“This project is a small exercise to begin to reconsider our landfill waste as furniture. With the climate crisis well underway, the time is more urgent than ever to begin re-thinking materials, and how we make a more sustainable future with the products we consume,” said Kyle Hoff, Floyd co-founder.

A limited edition of 75 tables will be produced at a cost of $350 each. The tables are available in two colorways: the bright white Cake, which features plastic scraps sourced from a toy factory, and the moody Galaxy, made with scraps from an automotive plant.

Hoff said the project aligns with Floyd’s intention to double down on its sustainability mission through recently announced commitments leading up to 2025, including a promise to ensure that 70% of all materials come from either recycled or renewable sources, a vow to minimize packing materials and eliminate single-use plastics, a pledge to use 100% FSC-certified wood across all products and the ability to measure, disclose and reduce greenhouse gas emissions across the company’s supply chain.
