Innovation





Stijn D’hondt, founder of Pinscher, believes the table of the future isn’t mined. One day we will switch to organic materials, grown or cultivated in natural conditions. In the quest for that circular, organic table, ‘Pinscher research’ abandons aesthetics to focus on research. We bring together designers, artists, scientists and researchers who are willing to take a critical, collaborative look at our current use of resources.

By opening up our existing designs, we can fully focus our attention on this issue. What is the current flow of materials? Which steps are needed to make this process more sustainable? Which alternative materials can we use? How should we handle them? What are the ultimate conditions to arrive at a circular table?

Collab Jumandie Seys



Jumandie Seys is investigating the repurposing of (bovine) bone from abattoir waste into building materials. He processes the bone into a product that looks like ivory but is (unjustly?) not considered as valuable. The result, strong and light, lends itself to various applications and industries. With ‘Bone Belge’ Pinscher opens up its range of tables for a bone finishing.

Seys and Pinscher are researching the application and circularity of this material in successive stages. By virtue of its cellular make-up, bone ‘grows’ in organisms without active intervention. This fits perfectly into the Pinscher dream of ‘growing’ or ‘cultivating’ the materials for its tables.
Each phase of "Bone Belge" is eternalized in a series of tables that externalize the state of the research.
