How does plastic behave in nature? To this end, Akies conducted material studies with the goal of making tiles from light packaging with a natural, stone-like feel, such as stucco marble. The process includes heating (melting), shaping (molding), pressing, sawing, and grinding. Depending on the material and processing, colors and textures change, as do possible uses.
