The Butter Range has turned 10 and to celebrate we're introducing a brand new colour — Clay. Created in 2011 as DBT's first furniture collection by founders Sarah Gibson and Nicholas Karlovasitis, Butter has become known for its playfulness, durability and longevity. Made from up to 80% recycled plastic, the range has stood the test of time.
"The Butter range is close to our hearts, being our first-ever furniture piece, it has sustained and informed the direction of our work, using sustainability as a source of innovation and remaining true to a product's materiality. Ten years on, we’re pleased to see that it remains just as relevant and even more important today."
— Sarah Gibson & Nicholas Karlovasitis, designers.
Butter welcomes Clay into its colourway, adding a natural warm hue into the recycled plastic mix. Robust in function and design, the collection offers a geometric and pared-back aesthetic that has remained unique and timeless.
Outdoor-friendly, UV Stable, Waterproof
Available in 9 different colours, the collection includes chairs, low stools, bar stools, benches, lounge seats and coffee tables that can be used inside or out.
