Litheoz stands apart from conventional concrete due to its technologically advanced and engineered features. Imagine a material that can be custom molded into varied forms, homogeneously pigmented to achieve a range of colors and fine textures. With intricate processes and balanced formulations, Nuance Studio has taken concrete and fashioned it to an elevated, luxury material - 'Litheoz'. Litheoz is an ultra-high performance fiber reinforced concrete (UHPFRC), carefully engineered to redefine the abilities of concrete while creating a perfect blend of technology and allure.
Precisely measured ratios and meticulously engineered processes ensure high packing density and fewer capillary pores resulting in high compressive strength (100 - 120 mpa).
Litheoz is reinforced at micro and macro levels with a matrix of fibers ensuring high flexural strength. The material has 6 times greater flexural strength over conventional concrete and has chip-resistant properties.
The presence of micro-sized particles and high particle packing density helps effortlessly replicate even the smallest of details from the mold allowing for myriads of textures and superlative surface finishes.
Nuance Studio has created these textures replicated from the mold as well as naturally formed textures that are non-repetitive in nature.
The base color of Litheoz is white. It is homogeneously colored using the highest grade of UV resistant pigments. The colorfastness of these pigments ranges between 7 and 8 (8 being the highest).
This allows the carefree use of the products in indoor and outdoor spaces. Homogenous mixing of pigments into Litheoz naturally creates distinct mottled tones that give a natural and earthy appeal.
A dense structure with fewer capillary pores prevents water from seeping past the surface of Litheoz, making it inherently resistant to external conditions. To maintain its pristine surface finish, Litheoz is surface treated to provide protection against commonly known stains.
Nuance Studio's product designers use methods ranging from traditional handmade molds to CNC made molds to manufacture products. The rheology of Litheoz enables it to be cast into a mold by spraying, pouring or injecting. It can also be sculpted by hand. The ideal manufacturing process for each product may differ and is selected according to the desired output. Litheoz has been growing at a rapid pace, picking up on the needs of the market and presenting unique solutions. With this customizable material, Nuance Studio has been able to create several options under each vertical for many spaces, few of which are Perspectiles, Indoor and Outdoor furniture, Doors, Counters, Large Washbasins, Decoratives, and Accessories.
