In our article “Waste Based Glazed Brick at Dutch Design Week“, we introduced you to our colourful collaboration with Daria Biryukova, founder of Studio Mixtura. She is the expert in ceramic glazing techniques. Together, we developed a new range of glazes from waste that can be applied as facade and interior wall cladding.
At this year’s Dutch Design Week we presented the results: six vibrant WasteBasedGlazedBricks. Many of you have stopped by to see our new surface designs up-and-close. The responses have been incredible and currently we’re performing tests to check the viability of large-scale production.
During research and development, we worked together with ABO Global. We used metallurgical by-products that usually have very limited reuse. Did you know that millions of tons of this material is released every year worldwide?!
To move from our current linear economy to a circular economy, we find it essential to show that waste is a fully-fledged raw material of the future, both technically and aesthetically. The WasteBasedGlaze project does just this by finding extra value for these types of waste streams.
Below are some inspirational images of our six new “flavours“ of aesthetic and colourful glazes: Cardamom, Cloves, Juniper Berry, Marjoram, Mint and Saffron. Which one is your favourite?
