Glow Chair | 2016 ICFF NYCxDesign Award


Kim Markel

Glow Chair | 2016 ICFF NYCxDesign Award


Handcrafted from reclaimed plastics by award-winning designer Kimberly Markel, the translucent and whimsical Glow Chair has been described as looking like candy, ice pops, gummy bears, and ice! 

The different objects of Markel's Glow Collection are all handcrafted from reclaimed plastic bonded with resin. See the Glow Mirror, the Glow Vase and the Glow Hand Mirror.


Markel's work comes from the need to create, with a desire to do it in a responsible way. 

Reclaimed plastics come from various sources: soda bottles, styrofoam, lunch trays, and eye glasses - all at the end of their usable lives. Unbelievable but true. The unique makeup of the pellet/resin mixture gives the finished pieces a perfectly imperfect, organic form. 

These unusual, original and colorful series are often enough to elicit this sense of magic and to celebrates the experience of feeling magic in ordinary objects.
