BENTU SURFACE grew out of the crossover experiments designed and performed by concrete design brand Bentu. With the curiosity towards the world and the equal care for all—all the raw materials, techniques and cultures that make up things, a group of people who fiddle with concrete would like to redefine the value of building materials upon living space. By perceiving the feelings, temperature, textures, colors of materials and exploring the arts and techniques, we make each material return to its nature.
