Turning ash into green.

This family of products for the garden uses toxic materials neutralized with natural resins. Working together with chemical engineers and Mexico’s biggest cement company, Cinza was aimed at finding new uses for flyash, a toxic waste derived from the process of extraction of cement. All of the objects of the collection are designed so nature can grow into and around them, turning this grey material into a green garden sculptural form.
