Design Shanghai : Inside and Outside of Architecture / 2018.03.14


On March 14 - 17, BENTU will participate in Design Shanghai 2018 with brand new concrete products displayed in Shanghai Exhibition Centre, including urban furniture, outdoor lighting, bathroom accessories and plant pots. Taking concrete as material carrier, we seek to explore the aesthetic possibility inside and outside of architecture.This  March, we look forward to seeing you in Shanghai.


Once a building is built up, then the inside and outside of which are naturally form. Between inside and outside is the symbiosis of authenticity and grandeur and the interdependence of material and space, constituting the constant cycle of all things. Concrete, a common material, structurally connects the inside and outside of architecture,  as a result, the unity of aesthetics and everyday completes in the connection with authenticity.


 

Outdoor Collection


We've done many different experiments for urban furniture system as concrete, originally the building material, can't be more suitable for urban public space. Not only the outstanding plasticity and durability concrete maintains, but also the character of simpleness and nature that blends concrete into one harmonious whole with architecture  and landscape.

Bentu Surface


Bentu Surface grew out of the crossover experiments designed and performed by concrete design brand BENTU. With the curiosity towards the world and the equal care for  all—all the raw materials, techniques and cultures that make up things, a group of people who fiddle with concrete would like to redefine the value of building materials upon  living space.


In March, Bentu Surface will present 2018 new-released products inDesign Shanghai 2018.
