Intellectual property commercialisation specialist Frontier IP noted on Wednesday that its portfolio company Alusid has launched an extension to its ‘SilicaStone’ range of sustainable alternatives to traditional stone.

The AIM-traded firm said Alusid's SilicaStone slabs had been used, in collaboration with designers Soft Baroque, to produce finger-jointed tables which referenced traditional woodworking techniques, which it claimed demonstrated the “strength and adaptability” of the “pioneering” 100% recycled material.

It said the commission was received from Modern Design Review for the Ace Hotel, as part of the London Design Festival.

“Alusid has already won widespread industry recognition for its energy efficient alternative to traditional stone and ceramics for architectural applications,” Frontier IP’s board said in its statement.

“This launch builds on recent first orders for its SilicaStone tiles, from both the UK and abroad, and demonstrates the flexibility of its recycled materials technology as it approaches the next phase of its commercialisation.”
