except for transportations, what else can’t be cast in concrete? we are obliged to think that most thing can indeed be cast in concrete; we have seen enough, ranging from speakers to writing instrument to foosball table to induction charger, to come to this conclusion and now, there is the concrete dock for iphone too. it sounds like a logical development as concrete are robust and heavy, which makes it well suited, if not the choice material, for an iPhone dock. developed by German design studio hardwrk, the concrete dock for iPhone, aptly dubbed Massive Dock, is hand cast using a complex procedure to achieve a high degree of density, fitment and impeccable finish. each dock is inspected by hand, polished, cured and sealed to avoid impurities.
a matte finish further accentuates the beauty of raw concrete, while a purposeful open slot, coupled with a multi-silicone inlay allows your iPhone to sit snugly within and at a subtle angle for comfortable viewing. the dock’s 570g (1.26 lbs) worth of pure concrete heft combines with special micro suction surface under the dock enables easy one-hand docking and undocking of your device. an opening for the Lightning connector is in place for the cable to pass through, along with a cable channel to direct the cable to the back of the dock. available to fit all iPhone 5 models, even with 1.5mm thick cases on. the dock and the slot is the same; the fitment difference lies in the silicone inlay. as with most concrete objects we have witnessed, the Massive Dock doesn’t come cheap; each dock will set you back at €59.90, or about 82 American dollars.
