Concrete- it's not just for driveways anymore. LiTraCon is the world’s first commercially available translucent concrete, a revolutionary product that combines tiny optic fibers with fine concrete, creating a durable building material that transmits light. Winner of the 2006 Leaf Awards, LiTraCon is amazingly versatile and attractive. What I find incredible is that this cutting edge concrete can still be used to construct load-bearing walls, as well as windows, floors, fine art, lamps, counter-tops, and other contemporary products. I loved the variety of patterns and textures available. Each block is handmade, producing a unique pattern of lighting effects. It’s a unique design solution for city-dwellers who may wish to let in light yet still block out the accompanying ambient noise of traffic. It’s also more heat-efficient, providing more insulation than glass. I’m very excited about this product, and look forward to it spreading across Europe and jumping the wide blue to our shores!
