Naturbetong - unequalled combination of industrial look and dust collecting since 1950!

Launched in 1950 by architect Erling Viksjø, but somehow still not very popular amongst most people, the technique of naturbetong has been used in several very important public buildings in Norway, including the government building, which was the main target and heavily damaged by the bomb in Oslo 22nd July 2011. Now we can never tear it down.

  1. Usually they use river stones, smoothed and rounded by the river for thousands of years, to mix into the surface of "naturbetong". Can be bought at the town of Hønefoss, among other places. These stones also have a nice spectre of colors, from white to redish.
