At Lyon Béton, you will have understood that we like to play with concrete, a raw material that is not predestined to be visible, to create decorative objects and home accessories in concrete.
Some products in the singleton collection are directly inspired by construction work and human constructions. You will notice that our concrete floor lamp is a reproduction of a lighting spotlight. The same goes for our concrete desk organizer from the low tech collection, which takes the form of a building brick. Making these connections allows us to pay homage to the world of construction that gave birth to our favorite material, and also allows us to highlight the concretization of our world, represented by our concrete board named “the gray planet”. This painting is a concrete planisphere that illustrates how our world has been transformed by this material.
Our designer Bertrand Jayr was greatly inspired by the idea of depicting the fact that nature always ends up taking over concrete constructions in order to regain its rightful place. He gave birth to the collection of urban garden decoration objects, including concrete flower pots in the shape of nuclear chimneys, and concrete soliflores in the shape of gas pipes.
The low-tech collection objects will stand out in your office, their shapes are inspired by the world of computers and office icons that we know well. You will notice that the concrete doc rack magazine holder is a reproduction of the folder icon of the Apple universe, just like the design of our concrete clock, which is a reproduction of the load icon that appears when you start an Apple device.
Among all our decorative concrete objects, some stand out by highlighting the madness of our designers. This is the case of our concrete bookends, grays matters, which take the shape of two hemispheres of human brain, which materializes our thoughts and thus makes visible the extent of our knowledge. We pushed the screw all the way to the end by integrating a light bulb between the two hemispheres of gray matter to create the eureka concrete lamp, which illustrates the idea in the same way as in a comic book.
Our flagship product is the cloud, an original object for decorating toilets. It is a concrete shelf in the shape of a cloud, on which you can store rolls of toilet paper. Thanks to this shelf, you no longer need to hide the toilet paper rolls, they are part of the decoration. Some have tested the DIY production, of course, but these shapes have never been equalled, the cloud will remain the mythical object of Lyon Béton.
