Concrete is not just limited to being used for cinder blocks and patio pavement. Edmonton design studio konkret can make concrete countertops into kitchen centrepieces. Its product line extends to include built-in sinks, patio furniture, coffee tables, fireplaces and works of art.
Owner Manson Parks says these are created using new technologies, such as fabric-forming and glass-fibre reinforced concrete, allowing for curved, fluid shapes and lightweight pieces. “We’re not interested in doing the same old, same old,” says Parks.
