Alted H01 tiles by Berta Julià Sala for Alted Materials
Dezeen Showroom: Alted H01 is a collection of colourful surface tiles made of paper waste, developed by product designer Berta Julià Sala for the Spanish brand Alted Materials.
Intended for use indoors across walls and ceilings, the Alted H01 panels are designed by Julià Sala and Alted Materials to be easy to install and maintain to ensure their longevity.
The tiles are all made using Honext – a type of board made from cellulose waste salvaged from the paper industry and sealed with a water-based coating that derives waste vegetables.
“To offer an overview of the impact, 100 square metres of Alted panels save 722 kilograms of waste from ending up in landfills," said designer Julià Sala.
Alted H01 currently comprises panels made in various colours and in three different patterns, but they can also be customised to suit different interior spaces.
According to designer Julià Sala, they are also designed to be completely recyclable, embodying the principles of a circular economy.
"The panels can be completely recycled within the same loop, rather than being downcycled like most construction materials, preventing them from becoming waste again," said Julià Sala.
"Alted's vision entails penetrating the market with superficial and structural products and eventually transitioning to a circular economy business model in which the development of new products is only one component of a larger circular construction system," added the brand.
