About

 

 

  Somos LUKEN una línea consciente de muebles de diseño para niños, creados y producidos en México. Estamos preocupados en darle un mejor futuro a la basura que producimos por eso la línea está totalmente hecha de plástico usado. Ayúdanos a recaudar dinero para reciclar 100,000 botellas de plástico y arrancar como compañía para poder seguir así....reciclando.

   LUKEN is a meaningful kids furniture line totally made of used plastic, created and produced in Mexico. We are worried about the amount of rubish we generate and want to clean some up. Please, help us fund this project so we can recycle 100,000 used plastic bottles and grow as a company so we can keep upcycling

Utilizamos botellas usadas de plástico como material prima, se lavan y trituran para después transformarse en tableros planos por medio de la fundición sin añadir ningún químico adicional. El resultado son piezas planas que conforman los muebles y simplemente se ensamblan en la casa del cliente. Sin clavos ni pegamento!

We use flat boards made out of 100% used plastic. No chemicals are added  in the process, after cutting the boards the result are flat pieces that are simply assembled in the client's house. No nails or glue are required.

Nuestros muebles son: 

  • ecológicos
  • sumamente resistentes al agua, sol y hasta niños!
  • ideales para exteriores e interiores
  • fáciles de ensamblar, sin necesidad de pegamentos o clavos
  • de envío económico ya que caben en cajas planas
  • creado y producido en México

Our furniture are:

  • eco-friendly
  • water, sun & even child-resistant!
  • ideal for outdoors & indoors
  • Easy to assemble without the need for glue or nails
  • flat packed therefore fright services are non expensive
  • created and produced in Mexico.

 

 

Le damos una nueva vida a la basura, esta vez se convierte en mesa para aprender, sillón para leer, el plástico renace en algo mejor. 
Hasta ahora la producción ha sido pequeña y por eso kickstarter nos está ayudando a llegar a todo el mundo con esta campaña de recaudación de fondos. 

¿Para qué será utilizado el dinero recaudado?

  • Con los fondos produciremos 200 muebles con 100,000 botellas de plástico.
  • continuaremos investigando sobre diferentes materiales ecológicos
  • apoyaremos instituciones involucradas en ayudar a niños, el último apoyo que entregamos fue a las ludotecas del IMSS en la ciudad de México. Te compartimos nuestra experiencia:

We give garbage a new useful life, it's transformed into a table to learn or a couch to read, the plastic reborn into something better.
We want to play our part in order to decrease the garbage that pollute our seas.

Until now we´ve produced a small quantity of our furniture, please helps us grow and continue recycling!

What's the propose of the money raised? 

  • to recycle 100,000 plastic bottles in order to give them a new life. With your help we will produce 200 pieces of furniture 
  • continue our research about new ecological materials 
  • support institutions involved with kids, the last donation we made was to the recovery rooms in México public hospitals (IMSS). We share our experience with you:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Durante el desarrollo de nuestra marca hemos podido trabajar con materiales ecológicos hechos de materiales reciclados de uso cotidiano. Al ser creados bajo estos términos, los acabados de nuestros muebles presentan ligeras variaciones dependiendo de las botellas que se hayan utilizado y el resultado siempre es diferente.

Our products are done from recycled materials and may present variations depending of the bottles used.
