Rok Concrete Paperweight

Rok is an origami-inspired paperweight with beautiful textures and an elegant form. Created by Singapore designer, Melvin Ong of Desinere studio, Rok is entirely handmade in raw concrete, a material not commonly associated with visual arts. However, Melvin has artfully transformed this dull, unsung material into an ornamental sculpture, allowing the intricate fold details to bring out the beauty of raw concrete. What an interesting juxtaposition of elements! See more of Desinere’s works here.
