Fun with concrete

  • Comment

A sensuously curved tubular base for a glasstopped table, a fabric made from fibre optics woven through concrete, and a 'delicate' wedding dress bodice made from concrete 'shells' were some of the short-listed entries for the second student competition at the Royal College of Art sponsored by the British Cement Association.

Shown here is the winner of the £2,500 first prize, a concrete wave that changes colour when heated, by Chris Glaister, Afshin Mehin and Thomas Rosen.

Students were asked to 'explore and reinvent concrete's untapped creative and functional potential'.
