Chinese furniture company Bentu Design manufactures a line of furniture produced from otherwise discarded material

Chinese furniture company Bentu Design released a new terrazzo-style furniture collection. The catch? Instead of relying on traditional manufacturing resources, they recycled ceramic waste from Chinese city Foshan, the world’s leading producer of ceramic waste.

For companies in Foshan, it costs a lot of money to dispose of ceramic waste due to nature’s inability to break the material down. Because of this, affected areas lack vegetation and nearby water sources get polluted. To make this collection, Bentu Design collected over 4 million tons of ceramic waste from Foshan. The furniture comes in light and dark speckled patterns.
