Design Academy Graduate Tom van Soest has invented a process for recycling waste construction materials into a new type of stone. Using an industrial blender, he grinds up glass, bricks, concrete and even entire sinks into a fine powder and then bakes the mix at a high temperature. The result is a new stone-like material that can be used to build with.

His ‘trial bakes’ demonstrate the variety of textures and colours that are achievable using the process.
