Cantilevered, Curvaceous Polished Concrete Kitchen Island

(via) One of the coolest restaurant design elements we’ve seen in Vancouver in recent memory has to be the concrete communal table that dominates the left side of the dining room Torafuku on Main Street. The heavy duty construction gives the restaurant a serious sense of permanence — it’s also just plain cool looking. London’s BeauConcrete takes the idea a step further with a kitchen island project by kicking out the legs on one side so it curves to a gravity-defying cantilever. It’s also powered up with outlets and an induction cook top. We want it bad.
