Well, 2019 has been a mammoth year for us here at Fluid Stone, we’ve had some massive projects on the go – we love what we do and any time we get a bit of a challenge when it comes to creating someone’s design, we relish in considering the best way to design, build and install their project. Let’s have a bit of a retrospective of FluidStone’s year of Concrete!
Getting Social – We’re on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
That’s right, we’ve been sharing our projects and photographs on social media platforms and we’ve had a fantastic response from our followers. We’ve been sharing a variety of both our projects that we have worked on, as well as designs that inspire us in what we do every day. Take a look at some of the stuff we have shared over the year below.

Board Formed Concrete
We have crafted board-formed concrete for a client in this photo, as you can see, we have used real-life pieces of wood with the patterns and grain clearly available as a part of the mould, and this has transferred the pattern over to the concrete itself! Which lends itself an organic feel! This is a classic design choice that is used by design-savvy individuals to this day! As you can see the effect is quite subtle, but highlighted by these under-the-counter ambient lights which are attached underneath. Wonderful!
Seven Dials Market
This was one of the year’s biggest projects, utilising terrazzo worktops to serve as a countertop to one of London’s premium food courts centred in the world-famous location of Covent Garden – Seven Dials Market. Interestingly enough, we also provided the design and build that would provide the foundation for the world’s first cheese conveyor belt! Awesome stuff.
The Fluidstone Blog
If you are reading this you will know full well that every single month we bring out a Concrete Design Blog all about concrete and its many uses in interior design, architecture and building. We have tried to make some guides for designers, homeowners, and architects alike to provide some ideas on how they could incorporate concrete into their work. Remember, if you want to consult with us, we’d be happy to talk! Just send us an email and we’ll be in touch.
Concrete is Cooler than Ever.
We’ve seen countless projects take place over the globe, concrete is back in style providing the Neo-modern shimmering look when treated or the timeless brutalist appearance when left raw – the options are endless and this is largely due to the flexibility of the design and the widespread appreciation of this. Humans have ideas – it’s what we do! There’s nothing more satisfying than bringing it to life, whether it’s a classic concrete 50’s diner top, elegant modern concrete kitchen design in London, or a space-age concrete board room desk – we can and will build it.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
