Concrete lighting has a number of innate properties that makes it a popular choice in lighting design. Not only is it known to be a robust material, concrete also offers aesthetic value as it can be moulded into any shape. Moreover, its organic nature and neutral grey tone bring a distinct character to the fixture. Cement is also a term that crops up from time to time in reference to concrete. While it's commonplace in colloquial speech to use the two terms interchangeably, concrete is the accurate term as cement is only a component of the material.
In designing concrete pendant lights, table lamps or wall lights, the raw or hard nature of concrete can be suitably balanced as it lends itself to be combined with materials such as glass and wood. Whether concrete is used to accent a design or prominently featured, concrete lights are often described as modern industrial, urban chic or raw and edgy.
In lighting design, concrete or stone can be manipulated to make varying style statements. For instance, concrete wall lights with a textured or porous finish complement rustic outdoor settings, while concrete hanging lights with a smooth finish above a kitchen island can make a chic design statement. Be it a minimalist approach or a unique artisan feature you are looking for, our collection of concrete lights covers a diverse selection of styles, textures and combinations.
