light translucent concrete

Nothing is like before – with Luccon, architects, designers and artists experience a completely new world of creativity.

Soft light makes its way through solid concrete, creating never seen before effects in rooms, public spaces and objects. In every form, in every size. Speaking for itself, impressive, attention-creating and always focussing on the source of all life: LIGHT.

The merging of cold, hard material and subtle lighting effects becomes the latest inspiring challenge for creative minds.

THE HIGHLIGHTS

design_white

innovative
design options

Optical fibres incorporated into concrete let the stone appear massive and transparent equally, making light, shadows and colors visible.

individual
and unique

In the manufacturing process, transparency and position of the optical fibres can be defined exactly. This allows to produce slabs with individual customer designs and structures.

highest
durability

Due to the relatively small amount of fibres, strength and durability of LUCCONdesign is equal to ordinary concrete slabs.

water proof

Thanks to the use of waterproof material with low crack width, LUCCONdesign can be installed in both outdoor and in damp indoor environments.

frost resistant

Air pores are formed in the production of Luccon Design, making an escape space for freezing water, ensuring a high frost resistance.

The creation

LUCCONdesign is a precast concrete product. In a special process fiber optic cables are inserted in a fine-grain concrete. Due to the relatively low portion of fabric, the solidity and consistency of translucent concrete is equivalent to high-strength concretes.
