The Common Sands — Forite project has been created by Studio Plastique, Snøhetta and Fornace Brioni as an eco-friendly home decor product that would help to transform trash into treasure. The prototype project sees glass from electronic waste transformed into home decor tiles that could be used in the bathroom or kitchen just like a conventional tile. The tiles have been designed in two sizes and each feature a distinct expression due to the recycled nature to make no two quite alike.
The Common Sands — Forite project identifies what can be done to recycle materials that would otherwise head to the landfill, while also enabling home decor aesthetics to be enhanced with an eco-friendly design.
