Recycled Robots

Save the earth while protecting (and styling) your dinner table. Inspired by designers Vicki and Richard Kung, these creative and functional placemats deliver an extra coaster every time you remove the central circle. Each set of 4 PET felt placemats are created using 100% post-consumer waste plastic bottles. Designed, cut, sewn and simply packaged in the USA.

Designers Vicki and Richard Kung are inspired by all things robotic and sci-fi. This focus on sleek, smooth lines and giving their pieces a futuristic feel lead to the metallic, interchangeable pieces comprising the Modular Candlestick Set and the out-of-this-word qualities in many of their designs.

The worlds of si-fi and design collide in Museum of Robots, the couple's homage to metallic mechanisms, where a love of robots, technology and product design combine in functional products for the home.

It's no surprise the duo is designing pieces fit for the future. Richard has been collecting robots for 25 years and Vicki is a lifelong sci-fi fan who got her first robot at age 6.

According to Richard and Vicki, "All our products are inspired by robots, which to us are the essence of modern and nostalgic, futuristic and retro, technical and playful, functional and entertaining, and perfectly represent our vision."

Museum of Robots is located in the suitably sci-fi, online world of Second Life. The Museum hosts digital exhibits dedicated to the appreciation of robots, whether historical, cinematic or literary.
