Product spotlight – so sexy, so curvy, so….concrete by 910 Castings

I simply have to update the post I wrote below since our Master of Concrete just sent me another piece he’s just created:

I give you the “Chinese lacquer drum table in concrete”, and if all that weren’t enough….it’s cast in one piece. How? Where? Why? Well I happen to know where and I can’t say that my memories of 910 Castings’ workshop are fond, I’ve never been so cold in all my life. As to why? Do we need a reason for  pieces as cool as this? And how? Who cares. I want one!

At long last I get to write about a budding product line that is very dear to my heart. During a journey from cast-on-site concrete (yes the glorious business of casting parking lots), to concrete building materials and then onwards to pre-cast concrete counter tops and now concrete furniture, Boom Bechkowiak has refined the aggregate and the art of pre-casting concrete and now masters a material that is fickle and often misunderstood . He harnesses concrete’s ability to be a chameleon of sorts through carefully researched mixtures and selection of  just the right surface to cast against in order to create smooth, often glasslike surfaces that appear to be weightless and yet are as strong as you would expect concrete to be.

Wave Sink concrete 910 castings

The wave sink, has to be my favourite piece in his new collection. I swear it’s concrete, really, it is.

The S-table. Notice how it not only makes the obvious S-curve but has twist towards the bottom as well. Boom I have to ask, do you sleep at night trying to figure out how to make the mold for such a thing? I can’t begin to imagine…getting all light headed just thinking about what it would take.

And the coffee table in the collection is so new it still needs a name…ideas anyone? More organic than the other two and visually heavier but you have to love the intricacy of the interwoven columns.

All concrete pieces are custom made. Prices available on request .

    If all else fails there’s always 3D printing for something like the S curve. Or for anything even (the inside of that S curve could be hollow even!)

    Would love to see examples of concrete flooring. Have a project, store with concrete floors. They want to remove carpet and enhance floor. Ideas?

    I would name it Mandorla. It is when circles overlap and create the symbol of it’s own.

    Look it up and learn about all the meanings.
