Beazley Designs of the Year Product
The K-Briq is a sustainable building brick with the highest recycled content of any brick currently available. At least 90 per cent of its content is recycled construction and demolition waste.
The brick takes 24 hours to manufacture and does not require fossil fuel or firing to produce. This means that it releases a tenth of the carbon emissions in its production compared with a traditional fired-clay brick.
This brick is Kenoteq’s first in a range of products that strive to establish a circular economy by utilising waste and recycled materials.
Designed by Gabriela Medero and Samuel Chapman.
K-Briq was nominated by the public with the Beazley Designs of the Year 2020: Public Nominations.
