An Intriguing Design Innovation: Litracon® Transparent Concrete

An Intriguing Design Innovation: Litracon® Transparent Concrete

Have a look at this creative idea that can be widely applied when it comes to a variety of designs ! According to the producers,” Litracon® is a combination of optical fibers and fine concrete. It can be produced as prefabricated building blocks. Due to the small size of the fibres, they blend into concrete becoming a component of the material like small pieces of aggregate. In this manner, the result is not only two materials – glass in concrete – mixed, but a third, new material, which is homogeneous in its inner structure and on its main surfaces as well. Litracon® is a fully handmade product which results an exceptional and individual pattern of light in each piece“. We like the idea of indoor panels, but we believe there are many more ways this innovation could be taken advantage of. How would you use transparent concrete in your home?

    This material is the most sensational discovery after acknowledging that the Earth wasn’t the centre of the Universe!!!
    It’s Fantastic, it’s Magnificent, it’s… (my English is quite limited).
    It will change the concept and design of THINGS in a radical way.
    Probably the Aliens brought it in one of their flying machines!!
