A product that could revitalize overly-paved urban wastelands.

Based in the Netherlands, SolidPoetry is made up of two designers – Frederick Molenschot and Susanne Happle – who are trying to make concrete beautiful again.

Solid Poetry looks fairly grey and lifeless – as with most forms of concrete. What’s special about this particular concrete is that when you sprinkle it with water, decorative patterns will start to emerge after a short period of time.
