Translucent Concrete

SOLI Architectural Surfaces launched Lunacrete translucent concrete, a new cutting-edge product that is concrete embedded with light. Lunacrete (a play on the words “luna” and “concrete”) is a handmade product in which optical fibers are embedded, layer by layer, into concrete when it is poured. Light is transmitted throughout via optical fibers, allowing light, shadows, and colors to be seen like water ripples through the thick concrete surface. The new product is very durable, and is ideal for wall panels, flooring (indoor or outdoor), stairways, desks and more. Standard colors are lava-grey and white.
