Bentu is a Guangzhou-based experimental design studio that explores concepts of product, space and environment through the invention of new mediums.
Bentu does away with superfluous decoration and allows necessity and function to guide design. They believe all elements of an object have equal value – materials, manufacturing techniques, form and cultural influences.
The Bentu collections focus on the innovative and sustainable use of materials such as concrete, terrazzo and aluminium. Driven by environmental and social consciousness, Bentu has researched the re-use of construction waste in their exploration of new forms and finishes.
These initiatives combined with new technologies have transformed humble materials into beautiful objects that verge on functional art. After collecting a string of international awards, Bentu has joined an elite group of global designers making their mark in pioneering contemporary design.
