TRC was born with the idea of reducing waste from terrazzo production by upcycling the leftovers from Thamrongchai Company Limited, which has been a leader in the business of terrazzo and marbles for more than five decades. 

The inspiration for this project came when they understood the environmental impact of cement, its main material.

The numbers showed that the energy cost of cement production alone accounts for half of the total energy cost of the whole production. 

These terrazzo pieces are made from stone flakes and broken pieces that are beyond repair but can be crushed and reused to make unique designs full of individual beauty, communicating to consumers the importance of reusing materials. 

This project is part of the Slow Hand Design Exhibition 2022 under the theme “Uncertainty=Certainty”, which showcases a selection of top Thai designs that embodies the new normal trending and resolution based on Bio-Circular-Green economy.
