We are…

IceStone began in 2003 with a simple concept; transform waste glass into something beautiful. Co-founders Miranda Magagnani and Peter Strugatz set out to create a business that integrated sustainable, responsible practices from process to product, and to provide a high design solution that would address a real problem. With capital investment from angel investors such as Ben Cohen from Ben & Jerry’s, activist and author Dal LaMagna, the founder of Tweezerman, Greg Steltenpohl from Odwalla, and Gary Hirshberg from Stonyfield Farm, IceStone recycled glass surfaces were brought to market. IceStone has diverted over 13 million pounds of glass from landfills, and has given employees partial ownership of the company, all while manufacturing our product in the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard. Today, IceStone’s signature recycled glass and cement products remain an icon of the new countertop industry, delivering unparalleled style that brings design projects to life.

Our Facility

Every IceStone slab is made in our 55,000-square-foot repurposed facility in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in Brooklyn, New York that dates back to the early 1900’s. Since our founding in 2003, we have made many improvements to the building, while still retaining its historic exterior:

Our factory is daylit with sky lights, reducing energy consumption.

Our State-of-the-art water recycling system filters 98% of our manufacturing water.

We recycle any unusable glass or cement into roadbed.

Our goal is to become a zero-waste facility. We are pretty close; we currently recycle over 90% of our waste!
