IceStone began in 2003 with a simple concept; transform waste glass into something beautiful. Co-founders Miranda Magagnini 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 16 million pounds of glass from landfills and has made its employees partners 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 an unparalleled style that brings design projects to life.
