The latest design concrete is made of seashells

Sea Stone resembling concrete both in terms of looks and components is manufactured out of discarded seashells.

The shells piling up on shores as a side product of seafood and aquaculture industries usually end up in the landfill, but London and Seoul-based studio Newtab-22 figured out a way how to utilize it. As seashells are rich in calcium carbonate – otherwise known as limestone – a material quite similar to concrete can be made out of them. 

To do that, they combine the ground seashells with a natural, non-toxic binder. They primarily intend the terrazzo-like end result for small-scale use, such as manufacturing tiles or various design products.
