WRECK, the destruction of decorum, the ruin of culture. BENTU went deep into daily-use ceramics industry in Chaozhou, China, and tried to reveal the disintegration of culture behind this ancient city with huge industrial capacity and commercial value by exhibiting experimental furniture and installation, trying to reshape both the material and decorum.

Behind the huge output and commercial value of the industry are severe problems of dumping price, excess capacity, dust pollution, irresponsibly disposal, affecting the local industry status quo and living environment. However, the traditional concept of ceramic recycling only means to smash the waste and put them back into the raw materials for porcelain production. Limited by the viscosity pottery clay requires, the porcelain waste powder that can be utilized is not much. In the Wreck Experiment, we managed to carry out a different attempt: change the way of placing porcelain aggregate so as to improve the utilization of porcelain wastes and production speed and develop the possibility of assembled furniture with both artistics and practicable features. As designers, can we reshape both the material and decorum in this unbalanced reality?

Under the sweeping wave of globalization, the neat and orderly-planed old towns rapidly disappear, as well as the traditional rural culture that rooted in consanguinity.

A recycling plant in Chao’an recovers 1000 tons of waste ceramics per year. This is not only a cross section of ceramics industry in Chaozhou, but also the aftereffect of uneven global economic development. These is the garbage of China as well as the world.

When we entered in a factory, “48300 workers counting in the Fengxi Ceramic Industrial Zone” was no longer a chilly description, everyone of them is a an independent existence.
