The URBI ET ORBI
studio is the place where new trends in concrete object design and production are born.
”Concrete has always been the main material for our constructions. Our specialty, however, lies in its processing: in giving it form, color, shape, texture, and character. What always spurred our excitement are the endless possibilities offered by its very nature and qualities, while the uniqueness of each construction is exactly what makes our relationship with this material complete.”
Our projects used to be of a very large scale, at construction sites. Everything changed when we began to test our skills at a much smaller scale, inside the confined space of the workshop. We therefore embarked on a whole new venture, and quite an entrancing one at that. Naturally, it did cost us a lot of time, study, design trials (and caffeine!) in order for us to create the first series of products this time in 2012, as well as the discreet URBI ET ORBI brand.

Our raw materials.
‘’Concrete is everywhere! It has a past, a present, and a long future!
We view concrete as a material of unlimited possibilities, and we make the most out of those.
We do not limit our view of concrete only to its industrial form. Concrete can fit anywhere, as long as you give it the right form, shape, texture, and sometimes even color.
We believe in its nature, its plasticity. We respect its character and we accept it as is. Concrete isn’t just a temporary trend, it’s a permanent value. Any object made of concrete gains in value thanks to its uniqueness, its character, its appearance.”
The raw materials that we use at URBI ET ORBI are internationally acknowledged, both eco-friendly and human-friendly. Such examples are the special GFRC and UHPC mixes, the most sophisticated advances the concrete industry has to display.
We are developing new techniques, shades, as also various particular finishes like terrazzo, sand, etc.
Our production is handmade, harmonized by the European standards and directives of each product category.
This is why we, at URBI ET ORBI, create safe, functional, top-quality products that stand out in every setting.
