Whale Boardroom Table - Vepa the furniture factory

Made from Amsterdam canal plastic

Inspiration for the top of our boardroom table is a surfacing whale, with its distinctive blowhole and gracious lines.

The table’s legs, which in their design recall a whale’s imposing skeleton, are made of robust PEFC™ oak.

The surface is exquisitely finished using PET felt that has been heated and pressed to give it a luxurious look-&-feel.

The intermediate layer of the table top is also made from recycled PET bottles. Like the Plastic Whale boats, part of the intermediate layer is made from PET foam.

Our Whale Boardroom Table is part of the Plastic Whale by Vepa collection including the Whale Tail Chair, Barnacle Lamps and Whale Panels.

Plastic Whale by Vepa

Whale Boardroom Table – product sheet

Whale Boardroom Table is designed, developed and produced in Holland.

Made in Holland: Vepa distinguishes itself by producing everything in its own facilities in the Netherlands. Our own wood, sheet steel, tubular steel, powder coating, wood spray, upholstery and final assembly departments form a complete production circle within a single company. By producing close to the sales market we keep distances small and CO2 emissions minimal.

LCA: By using independent LCAs (life cycle analysis) we reveal the environmental impact of a product. In product development we can greatly improve later designs by carrying out an LCA in the initial phase. In addition, an LCA also provides insight into the main factors responsible for the environmental damage. We then use these factors as starting points for redesign or as focal points for improvement. The LCAs are carried out in accordance with ISO 14044.

FSC® and PEFC™: Vepa only uses certified wood. The FSC® and PEFC™ labels stand for responsible and sustainable forest management. Responsible forest management meets three criteria: it takes account of the environment, respects social aspects (such as the rights of local communities and forest workers) and is economically viable. Moreover, wood is the number one bio-based resource by nature.

TPAC (Timber Procurement Assessment Committee): Timber to be supplied or timber processed in products to be supplied must comply with the Dutch Procurement Criteria for Timber according to the Socially Responsible Procurement criteria. FSC® and PEFC™ are both systems that have been approved by the Dutch state secretary.

SRP criteria: Vepa complies with the SRP criteria drawn up by the central government. The national criteria for socially responsible procurement (SRP) for office furniture are available via the SRP criteria tool (https://www.mvicriteria.nl/en/webtool).

Plastic fishing on the Amsterdam canals: Every year, thousands of people roll-up their sleeves and take to the Amsterdam canals to come plastic fishing with Plastic Whale. Businesses come fishing with their teams, citizens join the public events, kids learn about the plastic soup and tourists experience the city in a complete different way. They all want to make the world a better, cleaner place and support Plastic Whale’s mission for plastic-free waters.
