The Alchemy of Glazed Bricks
Studio Mixtura was founded in 2015 by Daria Biryukova due to a fascination with experimenting with waste and secondary raw materials.
Daria is searching for smart, sustainable and beautiful solutions for everyday life and her glazing has been exhibited at several design expos, including Dutch Design Week, the Tallinn Design Festival and Il Salone Del Mobile Milan.
Within this project, Studio Mixtura provides the knowledge of an alchemist to further develop the extensive research for large-scale application of the glazes on our sustainable WasteBasedBricks®.
Mission to 100% Waste-Based Bricks
Quarrying is a destructive industry to the environment and has a direct impact on the landscape by leaving tons of waste material, which are not used.
We aim to find aesthetic colourful applications for these types of waste streams, as well as by using waste from local ceramic manufacturers.
Contributing to a significant increase in the amount of waste we use in each brick, this aligns perfectly with our mission to work towards creating beautiful building materials made from 100% waste.
Waste Based Glazed Brick (WBGB)
With our new partnership with Studio Mixtura, we aim to create a collection with new surface designs that can be used for both façades and interior wall cladding.
Project “WasteBasedGlazedBrick” (say that 4 times fast!) is supported by Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie, the Dutch culture fund for design, architecture and digital culture. You can visit our grant page here.
The collection will be presented during the Dutch Design Week in 2021. Stay Tuned!
