Absolute Sane Innovation
While this looks like an abstract painting of cell phone cases, in fact it's a sheet of recycled plastic made from them. SmilePlastics takes pieces of plastic that would otherwise wind up in a landfill and makes them into versatile sheets that are "used extensively all over the world as furniture, shop fittings, work surfaces, bath panels, and screens, etc., in domestic, commercial and office environments."
Other materials used in making the sheets include wellie boots as well as plastic bottles and pipes.
I'd love to use their cell phone sheets for my kitchen counters. They'd look great, and would always remind me to recycle. But unfortunately they're a little out of my price range.
Maybe I could make a patchwork with their sample set. . .
