After being obsessed with concrete since 1984 we are now investigating other materials. How beautiful concrete is yet, it is hard to recycle and reuse. Aluminum, iron and rubber can be recycled and reuseable. The weight of these materials allows the objects to be adapted to enhance protection and security in public spaces. By 2018, we will offer a number of our most appreciated items in some of these materials. We have chosen to focus on pots, tables, benches and pedestals for outdoor environments.
First in a new material is the pot "No. 42". It is cast in aluminum, the dimensions are 33 x 35 x 30 cm and the weight is about 18 kg. It is available in the first quarter of 2018.
Conceptual and structural design of concrete artefacts and architecture as well as fabrication of one off's and small series
We carry out consultancy regarding concrete structures and usage. We have a unique combination of long experience and 'avant garde' usage of concrete.
We are project-oriented and offer services within a concept-to-completion environment.
Every project that we undertake is carefully tailored to our customers' specific needs. While some clients contract us to perform work all the way from concept to production, others utilize just a portion of the services that we offer. In addition to design, fabrication and installation, we are able to help customers with many aspects of their project - including estimating, planning and management.
Conceptual Expertise: We have long experience in performing all types of conceptual design. We perform most concept work in 3D CAD, which gives our customers strong technical foundations for their projects.
Tooling and Fabrication: We have successfully carried out demanding projects since 1984. Beyond in-house expertise we have a wide network of partners for special tooling or extended fabrication.
We have completed challenging commisions for conscious customers since 1984. Some of the objects can be found in Vacker Betong Collection. Please contact us for product leaflet.
We offer design advise when developing new products. From early concept to finished prototype. We also offer small series production. We have been appointed by Fogia AB to develop concrete tabletops, Märta Måås Fjetterström AB to develop a "concrete carpet" as well as Fide Fajans to find a production method for their concrete table.
