It’s been a long while since we talked about light-emitting concrete. A recent post over on the Italian site Designer Blog compelled us to browse the site of Litracon – a company that makes “light-transmitting” concrete. Litracon have developed a product that is the combination of optical fibres and fine concrete. It can be produced as prefabricated building blocks and panels. Due to the small size of the fibres, they blend into concrete becoming a component of the material like small pieces of aggregate. Now the clever folks at the Hungarian firm are not content at only making smart stuff, they’re also working out clever ways of selling the stuff. This lamp for example is really just four of their regular concrete blocks that buyers assemble at home by, erm, stacking them together. Sometimes obvious ideas win through.
