Yi Design is an R&D company with a small run manufacturing facility. Its mission is to solve the ceramic waste management problems as well as produce green, sustainable, circular products that can be used in architecture, art and commercial products.
18 million tons of ceramic waste is produced each year in China as a byproduct of industry. A solution for waste management is needed fast. Currently most of this waste is illegally dumped or buried and is not biodegradable. Most ceramic production towns do not have suitable waste management policies to resolve this problem responsibly.
The full range of products with a ceramic content of up to 90%, is developed and manufactured in China at Yi Design’s lab and factory. Its ceramic recycled materials are lighter, stronger and use fewer natural resources in the production process.
