SPOTLIGHT: CONCRETE CAT
The people behind The All-in-One Rolling Tray
Shawna and Matt chose concrete purely by happenstance. Matt was working with it as a laborer at a construction job and thought the concrete might be magic. You take essential dust and dirt, mix it with water, wait a day and you have solid stone. You can make a tiny ashtray out of it, or the Hoover Dam—the scalability alone is mind-blowing. Concrete Cat has been an ongoing experiment to create something surprising and delightful out of material that most would associate with utilitarianism and brutalism.
