IGNORANCE IS BLISS is an ongoing project about reincorporating the value of metal waste by applying it as a pigment from industries such as drinking water supply and soil remediation into new valuable products and methods. As a result of broad-scale material research and prototyping, one outcome is ceramic tiles, which are coloured purely using 100% industrial metal waste. The value of a currently ‘valueless’ and even toxic metal waste is recovered in a functional, process-efficient and scalable way.
This material will be exhibited during MaterialDistrict Rotterdam 2020, 17-19 March in Rotterdam Ahoy, the Netherlands! Get your free ticket here.
