12pcs of illuminated concrete benches were settled in the very heart of the Hungarian capital.
The pieces are made of 80mm thick Litracon pXL panels and can be lit up by night.
World’s first commercially available transparent concrete Litracon® is a combination of optical fibres and fine concrete. It can be produced as prefabricated building blocks. Due to the small size of the fibres, they blend into concrete becoming a component of the material like small pieces of aggregate. In this manner, the result is not only two materials - glass in concrete - mixed, but a third, new material, which is homogeneous in its inner structure and on its main surfaces as well. Litracon® is a fully handmade product which results an exceptional and individual pattern of light in each piece.
The patent protected Litracon® products present the phenomenon of light transmitting concrete in the form of widely applicable new building materials.They have been developed by Hungarian architect Aron Losonczi since 2001.
