RUBBiSH: Old Tires Now a Sink Surface


Minarc recently took an R+D Award from Architect Magazine for this sink made of recycled rubber tires.  RUBBiSH, as it's called, is made through a process whereby tires are melted, stripped of particulates and impurities, and stretched in a lightweight layer over a sub-material to create the surface. RUBBiSH is available in a 1/8 inch sheet of rubber or in a framed option where the product is held in place by two sheets of aluminum at the countertop edge.

    I’ve never seen such beautiful work with recycled tires.You can’t even tell that it’s made with tires. I wonder what other products these recycled tires could be used to create.

    Hopefully this unique product becomes a standard.
