Raw Concrete is King at 22 Design Studio
View Slideshow

Husband and wife team, Sean Yu and Yiting Cheng, founded 22 Design Studio with a vision to materialize their love of minimalism and urban living. Each of their products is handcrafted by a small team of creatives at their studio in Taipei. Inspired by architect Tadao Ando, every product is made from raw concrete, designed to mimic the geometric angles and curves of brutalist architecture. Their collection of direct, honest, and daring handcrafted concrete products includes jewelry, stationery, clocks, home decor, writing tools, and watches are all driven by an intimate understanding of the material and years of exploratory design.

Kelly Beall is senior editor at Design Milk. The Pittsburgh-based graphic designer and writer has had a deep love of art and design for as long as she can remember, and enjoys sharing her finds with others. When undistracted by great art and design, she can be found making a mess in the kitchen, consuming as much information as possible, or on the couch with her three pets.
