Story

Owner Billy Losleben started experimenting with concrete design in late 2011 after graduating with a degree in Industrial Design from Western Washington University. Before starting the company in 2014, Billy worked on improving clean cook stoves for developing countries and was a teacher in rural New Mexico. Through all of his experiences, Billy has learned new skills and refined his concrete knowledge and vision for Concrete-Project.

Concrete-Project exists to make clients’ ideas into a reality. Concrete is an amazing medium that allows for the creativity and flexibility to create unique pieces. Even if a design is the same, each product takes on the characteristics of the concrete pour and reflects the care only seen in hand-made objects. 

Currently, Billy lives in Sultan, Washington in a log cabin he built while in college. He resides there with his golden pup Cedar and draws constant inspiration from the beauty of the Great Pacific Northwest.

Materials

At Concrete-Project we admire, appreciate, and cherish materials that possess a story. Often times these materials are old, their stories having been written by time. The true character of this material however, the thing that makes it so special, derives from events the material has endured. Surviving winters blanketed in snow, summers baking in the sun, these experiences give a weathered piece of wood its character and along with it, beauty. 

The story of an object comes as much from its purpose or form, as it does from the material it's made from. Most materials earn their character, concrete is different. 

Concrete possesses character from birth. Each cast is unique. Each mix individual. Concrete is a process as well as a material, and while the process can be manipulated with skill and technique, the result is always distinctively concrete. It is a material that will stand the test of time, develop with age, and become more beautiful with every experience.
