Luccon Translucent Concrete
Available from Peter Meier, Inc.
LUCCONdesign is a pre-cast concrete product. It is a mixture of aggregate such as gravel or sand, cement, water, optical fibers and other cementation materials. It is manufactured in slabs with fibers according to a new patented production process. LUCCONdesign is made of fine grain concrete and due to the relatively low portin of fibers it has a compressive strength performing like high-performance concrete.
Due to the new process, individual and customized design of the fiber pattern is possible. The light conduction transmitted by the optical fibers allows light, shadows and colors to be seen through the concrete. As normal concrete, LUCCONdesign is a very durable product!
LUCCONdesign is offering new solutions and innovative opportunities in modern architecture. In fact, the applications are literally countless and up to the imagination of the designer.
LUCCONdesign is mainly used as wall panels, flooring, reception desks, stairways, partition walls, signage, furniture, washstands, and benches or countertops to name only a few. It can be used in interior or exterior settings to provide an astonishing architectural effect, value engineered options, state-of-the-art connection systems and other aspects that produce aesthetically pleasing precast concrete design.
