The idea of blogging about concrete design came about in the summer of 2009. Starting from 2010 I began to post reguraly and enjoyed it so much that I now share new material daily on the concretedesignblog. In 2012 Ivanka Factory began to sponsor my blog, this was a great honor to me because from my point of view Ivanka is one of the best concrete design studios.
My hobby has now become my full time work and I would like to share with everyone that I believe concrete is the best material on the planet.

The concept for tex-tile© was born in wig-work, a design studio in London founded by Candida Wigan. The studio uses a textile imprint on a tile to create and craft the tex-tile.
Tiles and textiles have little to do with each other – one is hard, cold, and the other is soft and warm. However these differences encourage a surprisingly symbiotic relationship. Textile moulds are malleable, making application to clay intuitive, as the mould can peel away gently resulting in an imprint of infinite detail. Through composition and repetition, these otherwise one-dimensional tiles create the illusion of an endless clothed space.
The tex-tiles are hand made at a workshop in Portugal, handicraft is an important component in the process.
