Bentu Design released its latest WRECK project, which is essentially a collection of furniture pieces and exhibition items that are constructed using ceramic waste collected from Chaozhou in China. The project delves into the consistent use of ceramics and the industry in Chaozhou -- it then uses broken ceramic shards to build a selection of furniture and artwork that represents the disintegration of culture in the city. Chaozhou supplies 70% of the total daily-use ceramic material globally.
Bentu Design's goal was to highlight the issue through an exhibition installation during Shenzhen Design Week. It is entitled WRECK-Regeneration Experiment of Wasted Daily-use Ceramics from Chaozhou, China. The WRECK Project is comprised of stools, benches, lamps and side tables.
