Discipline: Product

"SIX" wall tiles use concrete and waste ceramic as components. Nowadays, more and more ceramic waste from defective tiles is discarded and dumped in landfills, polluting local ecological environments. We combine it with concrete to produce wall tiles. During production, we mix the grinded tile residue with self-developed concrete and add sawdust to enhance toughness and reduce weight. Regarding the design, it uses the light and shadow imaging principle, which makes it decorative and artistic. Based on this, "SIX" can not only achieve environmental purpose, but also turn ceramic residue into products with using value.
