Light Concrete is known for over 80 years and since then excited essentially as an idea architects, designers and builders worldwide. The translucent concrete transported by a thousand fine, embedded light-conducting fibers, the light of a natural or artificial light source by any component thicknesses. The light concrete elements on facades, furniture, walls or floors begin so fascinating from within to shine and radiate. In the past, light concrete was produced mainly in manual procedures and processes to manufacture products that are high-priced and not quantitative fit. The German LUCEM GmbH has been able to develop a patented manufacturing technology in series production, which allows the company since the beginning of 2011 to produce exclusive light concrete elements in large quantities and on a the natural stone market comparable price level. Consequently, the manufacturer LUCEM of light concrete place in more and more areas of interior design and architecture application: in furniture and interior design, building facades and also for floor design. Thus the floor has been designed in the entrance of an office building in central London with translucent, backlit LUCEM light concrete date.
Light concrete as a light permeable flooring opens up completely new, aesthetic room concepts. The special feature of the material is the aesthetics of the translucent appearance in connection with the massive and resistant material that can withstand high loads. If you turn backlighting light concrete surface has a quiet, natural stone-like appearance; with activated backlighting she shines in exciting and surprising materiality. The beam angle of the fibers, the light concrete panels appear particularly bright right under the viewer; the farther the light concrete slabs are removed, the weaker their lighting is perceived. This effect produces e.g. in nightclubs or lounges surprising light Impressions - similar to a spotlight that seems permanently to wander with the viewer.
