Brutalist architectural inspiration
Like a tribute to the raw nature of concrete in architecture, Concrete LCDA reinterprets the building projects of the 1950s to 1970s, marked by the typical architectural style of the modern movement of Brutalism. The renowned Brutalist architects Tadao Ando and Le Corbusier are real sources of inspiration for Concrete LCDA designs. The Panbeton® range is our attempt to bring back those distinctive interior design atmospheres and conventions, namely through our Brutalist collection of decorative panels.
Scaffolded concrete collection
Architects and designers will enjoy playing with the many original variations and combinations of “scaffolding” to adorn their projects’ walls and ceilings. For example, out 15 mm Panbeton® Scaffolded panels follow the pattern of a scaffolded wall with visible traces of formwork. Once installed, they behave like real scaffolded walls and ceilings, as if they had been formed on site.
Thin and lightweight, Panbeton® decorative panels can be applied to walls and ceilings, or even be used to dress up furniture.
They can be attached to any kind of solid, clean, dry and dust-free supporting material using an adhesive (Den Braven Hybrifix 550 Sealant is recommended for our products). Diamond tools are used to cut and drill the panels (a cutting kit is available on request).
The panels are quick to install with little handling. Given their size, we recommend handling the panels by their edges, always with two people.
See our installation manual for more detailed information.
All Panbeton® panels undergo a protective treatment, applied by our teams at the workshop. With its matte appearance, this “Treatment D” is a dust fixative that protects panels from stains.
An enhanced water repellent “Treatment S” is also available on request. It is recommended for use in areas with a significant risk of spatter and/or with heavy foot traffic. It produces a slightly satiny look.
All our products are easy to clean using a damp microfibre cloth (potentially with a neutral, non-corrosive cleaning product like black soap).
