A Versatile Material

The versatility of concrete makes it a go-to medium of expression for many creative professionals. Canadian industrial designer Sumer Singh, for instance, finds that the material complements his creative process. “It’s not very hard to work with once you’ve figured out the consistency of your mix” explained Singh, “It’s actually pretty fast and convenient to work with.”

The Creative Process

Singh likes to let ideas grow organically in his head before bringing them to life using his favourite material, concrete. “I’ll sketch out a few ideas and… let the design cook in my head for a day or two – maybe even a week or two. It just depends on how complex the design is.” he says.
