Gray Matters - Bookends

by Lyon Beton

Gray Matters concrete book end set is designed by Bertrand Jayr for Lyon Beton as a fun and functional way to keep your books in place and inspire intellectual thoughts at the same time. Gray Matters is inspired by the link between reading and mind; knowledge and brain. Gray Matters also finds its light-full companion in the Eureka Desk Lamp.

Bertrand Jayr is a French young artist from Lyon who enjoys giving inanimate objects a voice. Strongly influenced by conceptual art, Bertrand is capable of adding poetry, humour and singularity to objects who are so often deprived of these qualities. 

Lyon Beton specialises in designing and manufacturing concrete furniture and accessories. Fascinated by the technical and plastic possibilities of this material, Lyon Beton worked for 5 years to develop a unique type of concrete, reinforced with metal wire and fibre, specifically for the production of furniture. The end product is not only relatively light, but is also extremely hard wearing and easy to maintain; ideal for use indoors and outdoors, for both private and public spaces.
