Action through design.

We set out to build a company that puts the planet first by celebrating Bali River Plastic as a material to our products. By up-cycling Bali River Plastic, Sungai Design is paving the way for a new era of sustainable design and products.

Sungai Design’s source of plastic is from its sister organisation – Sungai Watch. Sungai Watch is a nonprofit organisation that collects plastic from the world’s most polluted rivers and processes it for up-cycling. With 80% of the ocean’s plastic pollution coming from rivers, the team is focusing on stopping the pollution at the source. Sungai Watch has installed 270 floating barriers throughout Indonesia’s rivers to stop the flow of plastic from reaching the ocean and to date has collected over 2,300,000 kg of plastic, 36% of which is plastic bags.

Our Promise

Audited and tracked sources of plastic

Every chair is made up of 28 to 30 kg of up-cycled plastic.

Every sales helps fund Sungai Watch's cleanup effort.

Zero Waste. All offcuts are re-used to make other products.
