A concret reception desk for a home-like decor
The leaders of this accounting office wanted to bring the comfort of home to work through a current design that provides the satisfaction of working in a place that is as beautiful as at home. The constraint was to create a concrete reception desk that married the barn wood. To create a maximum of linear movement, we chose to finish the service counter, legs and bookcase with a trowel. In addition, to bring a touch of elegance, we have coated it all with a glossy sealant. In contrast, the darker facades were coated with a matte sealant, creating a contrast. These were molded upside down (like an overturned cake) and worked by manual roll compression. A partner cabinetmaker contributed to the manufacture of the furniture structure and incorporated barn wood planks.
The swan’s elegance
Cygne Béton was born in May 2016. Our company, established in Quebec and doing business with local suppliers, was born of the desire of its founders, Judive Jean-Gilles, François Jean-Gilles and Barthélémy Legros, to introduce its customers to the elegance of concrete. The swan was an inspiration as it exudes beauty, grace and elegance due to the shape of its long curved neck which naturally gives it these attributes.
Like the swan, concrete is a naturally elegant material.
