Demolition waste is often used as a foundation for roads, but Tom van Soest has thought of better second life for old construction material. His blender grinds glass, bricks, concrete and even entire sinks into powder. By baking the powders in a specific mix at a high temperature, new stone-like materials are created with which you can build again: Blended Materials. Van Soest conducted many experiments to find the right mixture, shape and heating process. His series of ‘trial bakes’ show an enormous variety in color and texture.
turning demolished waste into new stone-like materials
Blended Materials, a new green production line that turns demolished waste into stone-like materials without adding artificial binders like polyester.
The materials are 100% reusable and the combinations of the shapes, colors and textures are endlessly.
