We have been busy in the studio and shop and have officially launched the new company fineCONCRETE by elbwrm. We have been fabricating custom concrete countertops for over 18 years, but also love to play with the 3 dimensional aspects of this unique material in our concrete furniture for residential and commercial uses and a new line of urban products.

elbwrm will be focusing on architecture, art and research with Alexander teaching a series of studios and modules at the University of Virginia School of Architecture.

fine CONCRETE will be announcing an exciting new development in the next few weeks. But for now – we are pleased to welcome Patrick Schoonover as lead fabricator in the shop. Patrick graduated in the spring with an undergraduate degree from the Architecture School at UVA.

On the Boards: In addition to our ongoing gallery at Chroma Projects in Charlottesville, we will be part of an upcoming furniture show in Richmond this Fall – a select group of local designers will be shown at Modern Artifactson Cary Street. Fine CONCRETE will be featuring a limited run of tables and small-scale designs. We will forward the announcement when it is released.

For the Record: We have recently designed a series of concrete and metal interconnecting rolling tables forOpenGrounds at UVA. Brian Williams was the lead fabricator for this project, a graduate of the masters program at UVA.
