That’s rubbish!

The eyewear brand collaborated with studio Plasticiet to transform its new Antwerp store into a terrazzo-inspired “recycling temple”, using waste collected from the local area.

Ace & Tate is known for its imaginative approach to the retail experience: its slickly designed stores are a far cry from your average high street optician, while it’s been behind creative campaigns such as launching a zine to celebrate its first Bristol store with local mag Crack.


The retailer decided to collaborate with Plasticiet again for its new store in Antwerp, which features an entirely recycled interior made from rubbish collected from the local area. The Amsterdam-based company has made its name creating recycled sheets that nod to the aesthetic of more traditional natural stone materials such as marble and terrazzo.
