Concrete Everything is a local born and bred design studio that began with a passion to explore the beauty of concrete through craft and design. Since 2014, we have been crafting interesting pieces and spreading our knowledge of concrete through craft workshops. I hope you find your way around this website, a store I built up entirely from my bare hands. If you do get around to meet me, I hope you bring home with you not just my creations, but a deeper love to pursue life with meaning.
We are makers, explorers, dreamers, and lovers of everything beautiful.
Throughout my growing up life, I have always been a hacker, maker. I have been in Design & Technology (D&T) since my secondary school days and I have always enjoying tinkering, so crafting was a natural extension for me. In my tertiary & uni days, I studied architecture and industrial design which further exposed me to various tools and machines (like 3D printing, lasercutting) and it was a match made in heaven.
Being a crafter, I was working a typical corporate job like a pen pusher, I didn't get to make anything and my fingers were really 'itching' to create. Singapore being a tiny island had little access to craft materials. Think about where you could actually find some wood or steel and you probably wouldn't know where to start or realize that working with some of these materials require some serious heavy duty equipment. That's when I discovered concrete.
I observed that construction workers were paving along my void deck without any difficulties and extensive tools, and I thought to myself, why not! I 'borrowed' some cement, referred to a bunch of online videos, began experimenting and haven't turned back since. I didn't find cement, it found me instead.
Our humble beginnings began with some leftover cement and a mould in the form of a used milk carton. With these, I created my very first product that started us on our first steps. Looking back, I have created over 200 handmade concrete products and retailed them in multiple boutique shops and across multiple online platforms. Concrete Everything has been featured in various media platforms and it has been an exciting journey for me. I am definitely looking forward to greater things ahead!
