Concrete evidence of nouveau Brutalism with Alexa Lixfeld

Both Dezeen and The Dieline featured Alexa Lixfeld's wonderuously Brutalist bottle designs this week. How I love a bit of concrete (Corbusier would be so proud)! And it's amazing how much better Brutalism seems to work on a small scale. These bottles are interesting... so textural. The equal ratio of concrete to glass makes this item light and beautiful... not too heavy or dark. Sadly the same can't be said for the post WWII building effort in London. 

No doubt, bigger brands will be snapping up this creative wonder soon.
