Recycled Rubber

Cup Coasters – Not Only on Valentine’s Day

We experiment with the aesthetic and practical potential of rubber granules from recycled tires for about one year. Why with granules from recycled tires? Mainly for two reasons:

  1. Used tires are a serious burden for the environment, and they are still not enough reused (still),
  2. Rubber granules are practical (although difficult to process) construction material.

Up to now, we have successfully made different doorstops, cup coasters, pinboards, and even some pendants. To see our works, visit us on our Facebook page


Every work we do by hand. We carefully mix granules with glue and put the resulting “pulp” into an appropriate mold – in this case; it was an empty box of chocolates. After … hours of drying, the cup coaster was ready!
