Ceramics Made: Transforming Ceramic Waste Into Terrazzo

Ceramics Made: Transforming Ceramic Waste Into Terrazzo

Foshan, China is home to the largest and oldest ceramic factories. With its ceramics providing over 1/8 of the global construction ceramics and sustaining over 10 million Chinese, it also means that it results in tons of waste every year.

BENTU aims to reduce that waste with Ceramics Made, a sustainability project that uses ceramic waste to make terrazzo. Seeking to somehow integrate waste materials back into use in a broad, general way, they began to transform the waste product into everyday furniture that can be produced on a large scale. Thus, Ceramic Made was born. High quality furniture that is tough, even when thin, and has a sleek, classic look that would fit any space.
