the making of: concrete rings by 22 design studio


 

another batch of the ‘concrete rings’ designed by 22 design studio are for sale on the designboom shop.
22 design studio also sent us a few behind the scene snapshots of how their rings are made.

 

 


the cement and water are precisely mixed together

 


the metal ring part is place in the mould before the cement is added

 


the cement is inserted and tapped to remove air pockets

 


the cement is left to set for 2 days

 


then the ring is sanded clean and the metal is polished

 


the ring is then kept wet for 20 days
