Concrete Valet Tray: Tidying Up Your Desk Has Never Been This Concrete

If you have been following this blog, you will know our weakness for all-thing concrete and as such, when we first lay our eyes on the Concrete Valet Tray (basically, a desktop tidy or a desktop organizer), we knew immediately that we have to share with you guys. We are not buying for you, but you can sure pick up this awesomeness for 50 bucks on Uncrate. We are not affiliated, so you can shop without us benefiting from it. Damn you, cruel bastards. Just kidding! Continue reading Concrete Valet Tray: Tidying Up Your Desk Has Never Been This Concrete

Meet The World’s Largest 3D-printed Concrete Bridge Without Rebars

OK. It is more like the world’s longest 3D-printed pedestrian bridge, but anyways, I think you get the idea how it is groundbreaking monument in bridge construction. The bridge you see here is located at Wisdom Bay Industrial Park, Baoshan District, Shanghai, China, and it was the fruit of labor of Professor Weiguo Xu of Tsinghua University’s School of Architecture (not the Taiwan’s Tsing Hua, btw), Zoina Land Joint Research Center for Digital Architecture. The bridge was built in partnership with Shanghai Wisdom Bay Investment Management Company. Continue reading Meet The World’s Largest 3D-printed Concrete Bridge Without Rebars

Brizo Has The First-Of-Its-Kind Concrete Faucet Money Can Buy

When it comes faucet, the last material you expect it to be made out of is concrete, but here it is, the Brizo Vettis Concrete, a concrete faucet that screams industrial look like the cast concrete basins we saw earlier this year. Each Brizo Vettis Concrete Limited Edition Faucet is painstakingly crafted by Canadian expert sculptor, Christopher Shannon, and it is the first of its kind in the world. Concrete, as some of you may have already know, is hard but brittle, and therefore, fibers are added into the mix to fortify the sculpted faucet. Continue reading Brizo Has The First-Of-Its-Kind Concrete Faucet Money Can Buy

Kast Concrete Basins Add Patterns To Concrete Basins And We Are Torn

The mention of concrete objects, you’d relate to raw, gray surfaces, but not in the case of Kast Canvas, a new line of patterned basins from British concrete basin specialists, Kast Concrete Basins. As the product name suggests, these concrete-based sinks aren’t presented in the typical raw, gray form which some of us admire so much; instead, it is patterned. Personally, I love concrete for what it is and so, I am not sure hiding it behind pattern is my cuppa. However, objectively speaking, the Kast Canvas does indeed looks pretty and very unique, especially when it is colorized.

Aplomb XL Concrete Hanging Light: Concrete Can Be This Classy?

Concrete is a material which you either love it or hate it. However you may loath the look of concrete, it is part our life and a thing you have to learn to live with, but for those who love it as much as we do, then you will be glad that this world is not lacking of all things concrete. We have seen quite a handful ourselves here and it ranges from innovative paper concrete lamp to concrete expresso machine to speakers, and today we stumble yet another example, the Aplomb XL concrete hanging lamp designed by Italian studio LucidiPevere for lightning company, Foscarini. Continue reading Aplomb XL Concrete Hanging Light: Concrete Can Be This Classy?

Paper-Concrete Composite Looks Like Concrete But Without The Heft

I am not going to lie. I have this special affinity for concrete. The industrial flavor projected by any concrete object is, to me, very calm and zen-ish. But this kind of cool is not for everyone, partly, anything that you can think of, if made by concrete would be impractical as the object would be heavy and brittle. However, those cons would be non-issue for the Dome Lamp created by Budapest-based artist Rita Koralevics. Simply called Dome+ lamps with bamboo, it looks like they are made out of concrete, but they are not the concrete you imagined. Continue reading Paper-Concrete Composite Looks Like Concrete But Without The Heft

These Are Real Working Espresso Machines Made of Concrete and Kitchen Countertops Material

I am sure there are good reasons why espresso machines are mostly made of steel, but hey, there’s no harm in exploring the use of other materials too, right? I mean, what could go wrong? And that’s precisely what South Berkeley, California-based design studio Montaag has done: they went beyond the traditional material like stainless steel and opt to go with vintage compositions like concrete, corian, quartz, brass and even teak. Teak for a coffee maker is unheard of, much less heavy weights like concrete and stuff usually found its use in kitchen countertops. Along with the raw and unorthodox materials, the Anza Espresso Machines also boasts an exceedingly minimalist aesthetic – none of the complex stuff you see in today’s espresso rigs.
