Demolition waste is often used as a foundation for roads, but Tom van Soest has thought of a better second life for old construction material. His blender grinds glass, bricks, concrete and even entire sinks into powder. By baking the powders in a specific mix at a high temperature, new stone-like materials are created with which you can build again: Blended Materials. Van Soest conducted many experiments to find the right mixture, shape and heating process. His series of ‘trial bakes’ show an enormous variety in colour and texture.
