TOO INFINITY... AND BEYOND

CONCRTETE QUARTERLY / WINTER 05 - INTERIOR PRODUCTS

The versatility of concrete is underlined by the work of product designer Tom Huxtable. Using concrete for a range of basins as well as tables, Huxtable believes that the design possibilities of concrete are almost infinite and applications are limited only by the imagination. The concrete for his basins and furniture is hand polished to a glass-like finish. The inclusion of different materials such as quartz dust, metal filings or shell sand creates different luminous sparkles within the surface. A particularly dramatic finish is the inclusion of fine slithers of Welsh slate mixed into a white base along with ground marble. Colours and tones can be specified to complement any interiors scheme. The concrete is sealed to protect it from staining. Huxtable successfully combines different materials. For example, his concrete, birch-ply and stainless steel table celebrates the particular visual and strength characteristics of each material in a complementary form.
