Show your workspace you mean business with this weighty, monochromatic set of desktop pieces designed by Magnus Petterson for Areaware.
Concrete and steel come together to create these super small scale industrial-chic accessories. 22 Design Studio partnered with Designboom to make the rings, which come in two different styles—corner and rock—and sized to fit your finger.
Designed in collaboration with British illustrator Matthew Gaffen, Alex Chinneck's Concrete Rug applies the scrolling motifs in traditional rug design to concrete housed in a smooth wooden frame. Made from 238 individual pieces, the three and a half by six foot design appears to transform concrete into a tactile material. It's available from the Sculpture House.
Brutalism takes a backseat while Aplomb proves that concrete has a smoother side. Suspended from the ceiling with the greatest of ease, the pendant’s graceful drop belies the material’s intrinsic strength. It's designed by LucidiPevere Design Studio and produced by Foscarini.
Obleeek goes oblong with their collection of polished-concrete planters, designed by Leo Estevez, which give your greens a solid, safe place to lay down their roots and grow. Though this one is extra large, there are smaller desktop varieties available as well as side tables and bird baths.
