CUBE PLATE is a handmadeproduct by cast concrete. The production becomes at our laboratory in Athens by Greek artisans. For the casting we use thermoplastic molds which ensures the stability of the product’s dimensions and thickness. Concrete is an extremely durable material, hence can be widely used in many applications. The raw material that we use at URBI ET ORBI is internationally acknowledged and environmentally as well as human-friendly. Such an example is the special mix of GFRC which is the most advanced new proposal of the industry.
