Quarrying is a destructive industry to the environment. It 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.
Glazed bricks have long been on our minds. We’re already fond of our Shine series, the Truffle and Wasabi. The special top layer that we developed from recycled materials is a real eye-catcher for the façade or interior wall cladding.
That’s why we decided to expand our Shine collection with a series of innovative and unique waste-based glazing. And since we believe in the strength of collaboration with industry specialists, we teamed up with Studio Mixtura, one of the most exciting new experts in this field.
During research and development, we worked with ABO Global and used metallurgical by-products that usually have very limited reuse. 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® and WasteBasedSlips®.
