If you want to know if art made out of concrete can look lightweight the answer is a resounding yes! Artist and designer Fabrice Le Nezet created a series of enormous installations made from concrete blocks tamed by colourful metal tubing. This series, Measure, is a wondrous combination of raw and industrial materials transforming into something nearly organic. And as the concrete is cased by the steel frames it actually gives the impression of being light and easy to handle, even though we’re talking about a massive weight that is almost impossible to lift.
