Bentu is an independent design brand founded in 2011. We're engaged in product design and innovation, combining design with manufacture. We're an experimental, explorative, and cross-over team. Based on our design, we make products that meet our daily need. Through a series of experiments and exploration, we make each material return to its nature by revealing its original texture. 

In innate character, Bentu reverts to demand, close to indigenous culture; in outer form, the so-called international design is, free from all the unnecessary, pursuing unrestrained styles and returning the emphasis function.

Hiding behind the form and the function is the equal care for all—all the raw materials, techniques and cultures that make up things. There is no disparity between nobleness and lowliness, costliness and cheapness, and treasures and trashes. Devoting oneself to design will make the mud as priceless as the diamond. Everything asked for from the world should be cherished. There is no the best, but only the fittest. Either a straw or a handful of mud will glow if designed.
BENTU focuses on R&D, design, production, sales and promotion of products. Our products include lighting, indoor and outdoor furniture, wall decors and accessories. Bentu’s products meet international standards, and are of original design and high quality. Most products are certified to CCC、CE, ROHS2.0, SAA, C-TICK, FCC and IC. We have our own IPR and more than 200 patents. 






BENTU SURFACE grew out of the crossover experiments designed and performed by concrete design brand BENTU. With the curiosity towards the world and the equal care for all—all the raw materials, techniques and cultures that make up things, a group of people who fiddle with concrete would like to redefine the value of building materials upon living space. By perceiving the feelings, temperature, textures, colors of materials and exploring the arts and techniques, we make each material return to its nature.

MATERIAL CONCEPT
The integral molding of Fair-faced Concrete requires superior techniques as it can be easily affected by temperature, humidity and other surrounding factors. But the profundity and elegance of Fair-faced Concrete are much more capable of conveying the emotion of architectures than any other general materials.
 
We persist in using this hard-to-control material to produce high quality products with spotless flat surface and distinct edges and corners. This process requires us to pour and remove the concrete in and out of mould for one time in order to get a product in one piece. It's very difficult, but we won't stop, for the simple reason that concrete is beautiful.
 
In term of the materials, we use Ultra High Performance Concrete aggregated with recycled discarded ceramics tiles or demolition leftover concrete and produce with integrated mold.
 
In term of the performance, Ultra High Performance Concrete is antifouling and resistant to infiltration, and green as cleaning it requires less water. It is naturally condensed through the process instead of firing. What have done on the product had minimized the water consumed and gaseous pollutant produced, and made our best effort toward environmental protection. Wasted material takes up 50% of each our product and is truly being recycled while one product is being used. We want our products made of such material spread to everywhere we could reach so we can do more for our world.
 
CONCRETE ATHESTICS
Concrete is a natural material with very unique characteristics. Every individual piece is distinguished by an individual surface structure and texture and is thus unique. The color never stays the same. It changes with the weather, temperature, humidity of production environment, and over the duration of use.
In addition, there are many fine and small pores naturally scattere across concrete surface. Pores do not represent any limitation to its functionality. Precisely these pores highlight its aesthetic temperament and its strong personality. And that's our very first reason to keep it.
 
USE AND CARE
Concrete is a fragile material and should be avoided from impact and friction of hard objects.
The surface has been applied a waterproof and anti fouling coating. Any stains in use can be cleaned with a wet towel in time.
Any kind of cleaning tools that will damage protection coating should be avoided, such as abrasive paper, scouring pad and so on, in order to maintain the timeliness and function of protection coating.
The protection coating can be maintained 3-5 years under normal use.
 
BEFORE PURCHASE
Concrete products should aviod prolonged exposure to dampness, such as bathroom.
Cautious to choose for spaces of high anti fouling requirement.
