Having an aversion to industrial materials as domestic decor is not unusual, but as items like the Komat Beton Light demonstrate, they can exude a real gentleness when finished carefully and fixed amidst warm spaces.

This particular piece is quite simple in form, likely produced with poured concrete into a rigid rectangular mold. After hardening, the monolithic object would have been sanded and polished to to uncover surprisingly smooth surfaces and an organic texture of air bubbles.

A lightbulb is installed at the end of the edge adjacent to its wall mount. The visual effect that the Komat Beton Light creates introduces beams of shadow above, adding intrigue to the appearance of a plain wall behind it.
