Lyon Beton's raw concrete might be “crude” in the literal sense, but that doesn’t stop them from putting out products that are bold, elegant and totally original. While they draw inspiration from the urban environment around us, our influences run deep.
They fascinates by the Bauhaus school and other design movements that explore how the combination of geometric shapes can be a philosophy of life, such as the De Stijl school, Art Deco, Brutalism and the more recent Memphis Group. Among the figures who inspire us are Jean Prouvé, Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand and Raymond Loewy. These masters, most of whom come from a background in industrial design, have all contributed to the originality of lyon béton’s creations.
