Transparent Concrete Litracon
Interior Design Arts admires the world's first commercially available transparent concrete Litracon® is a combination of optical fibers and fine concrete. It can be produced as prefabricated building blocks. Due to the small size of the fibers, they blend into concrete becoming a component of the material like small pieces of aggregate.
In this manner, the result is not only two materials - glass in concrete - mixed, but a third, new material, which is homogeneous in its inner structure and on its main surfaces as well. Litracon® is a fully handmade product which results an exceptional and individual pattern of light in each piece.
The patent protected Litracon® products present the phenomenon of light transmitting concrete in the form of widely applicable new building materials. They have been developed by Hungarian architect Áron Losonczi since 2001.
Litracon is a world's breakthrough in commercial interior design that opens a whole new chapter for those designers who are in constant search for the new, innovative and truly impressive materials.
