check out what's new with next generation concrete surfaces this spring...
concrete slab : pacifica
concrete in a slab format is our neatest idea yet. clients love the idea of concrete counters but hate the clunky/costly poured in place options and welcome the ease of concrete collaborative's pacifica slab. fabricated just the same as any other slab, like marble, with a through body mix perfect for mitering, laminating and polishing. it's so simple and oh so chic. best part - our slabs are super cost effective.
concrete topping : ventura
a revolution in the world of poured floors - a real concrete topping. this thin, lightweight overlay is 100% real concrete, not resin. say goodbye to that plasticky look and hello to the modern aesthetic only concrete can deliver, naturally. ourcraftsmen will come and perfect your floor with ventura.
we are so excited to see our laguna polished concrete tiles interpreted using this hot spring trend - herringbone. the design geniuses at meyer davis in new york city took a chance in this pattern by selecting unique colored concrete tile. check out the contemporary times square hotel paramount and leading restaurant manzanilla. how much cooler does it get? these are collaborations we love
we are proud to announce that our concrete tiles are now made in the USA!
in a society of mass production we love that our architectural concrete products are all hand-crafted. even more, we love that our production is now at home in the USA. our product ranges are inspired by the the beaches of california so it was only fitting to set up our factory in the socal beach town of oceanside.
collaborative partners ryan, chad, and john have sourced all local raw materials to create the perfect balance between art and science that our exceptional concrete demands. this proprietary manufacturing process creates concrete surfaces that are completely unique. the passion and craftsmanship of our factory is inspirational and for our family it is truly personal.
we have successfully made in the USA stunning tile for gap, versace and price waterhouse coopers.
for your next project: consider local, consider hand-crafted, consider concrete collaborative.
Walking into a retail store you might not notice the floor, you focus is on the merchandise as you should. The floor needs to wow without overpowering the overall brand. Our concrete tiles find this perfect balance. Check out some floors we love and retailers that love concrete collaborative. Here is some retail eye candy to brighten your day...
Check out what we stumbled on through twitter @concretecollab. This awesome blog about sweet sweet concrete. Challenging people to consider the very basic of building materials and the artisans that perfect them. So cool! We are so lucky to have people truly understand that the material craftsman and suppliers are such an integral part of architecture and design. Read more...
We are excited to be a part of Dwell on Design this year. This trade show is part of the bigger Los Angeles Design Festival. Come see Concrete Collaborative at Dwell on Design stand 424 next week June 22-24 at the LA convention center. Oyler Wu Collaborative are displaying a creative installation we can't wait to check out. We are working with them on a new pop up restaurant in Costa Mesa right now. Our mates at Shades of Green Landscape Architecture will be displaying at Dwell Outdoor and using our alabaster trails pavers as part of the design inspiration. We are so thankful for these design partnerships. We have a pretty minimal stand, what a surprise for our contemporary concrete. We do have something new - a through body concrete countertop to show on our stand. This marks the launch of our new Pacifica range of pre-cast slabs for tops.
Ryan and Chad, partners at concrete collaborative, personally burnished the venice terrazzo tiles at the new Man Group office last month.The feature of the space is a grand stair case, custom designed with our mates at Spector Group. The treads are actually fully self supporting solid concrete terrazzo, a first for us. The clean and crisp alabaster venice terrazzo elevates the design and creates a light as air feel. Everyone involved is pretty excited with the outcome. Happy client, happy architect - the perfect collaboration.
