MIM studio uses a high density, high performance custom concrete mix which is resistant to weathering. As concrete is a composite material, each piece will be slightly different in terms of colour and texture and pores. Also over time concrete products will undergo slight efflorescence . This natural occurrence can be mitigated by frequent use. Furthermore in time concrete items do become darker as they interact with moisture and air. We use Reclaimed Teak wood for all our products, so certain features of its earlier use will be visible. The wood has been finished with linseed oil. The metal used in cufflinks is Sterling silver (925 Grade).

Avoid storing our products in humid or wet environments since water will penetrate the pores of the concrete and stain. Although we use dense mix concrete, chipping is possible if dropped or when the product makes contact with certain hard surfaces. To avoid chipping please handle the product with care and place them on soft surfaces. Our Concrete items do not require any special maintenance. Dry dusting if required with clean fibre cloth or a soft brush. For Cufflinks we have used Silver which oxidises over time, so necessary care to be taken.

All our products usually ship within 7 days of placing the order. If you need quicker delivery, Please feel free to contact us on:

The Factory is an interactive rolling ball sculpture made out of Concrete.

The sculpture is inspired by the Brutalist architecture of the last century, particularly the Industrial era and the functional architectural elements used in Cement and Steel factories.

In this work, we have attempted to merge the Brutalist factory architectural elements from the industrialization Era with a Playful path for the steel balls to roll along.

As the steel balls start rolling from their starting point on top of the building towards its final destination, they pass through the various architectural elements. sometimes hiding away and emerging from another end of a gear, sometimes passing through a spring-like spiral path in both the directions and at another time slowly moving alongside a majestic arcade. Along with their journey, they also take the viewer's eye through these various spaces.

What is particularly fascinating to us apart from the rolling ball, is the patterns formed by the shadows cast by different architectural elements that have been carefully put together to create a drama of these shadows which slowly unfolds as the eye moves deeper into the structure and around it. We are quite excited to share this experience with our patrons who will be able to appreciate and enjoy the unfolding of this drama too.

The factory is ideal as an art piece for home and office décor and will serve as a companion during the much-needed break from work.

So let's get to play!

Simply brilliant! MiM Studio continues to impress me. Intentional design is evident in every aspect of this chess set, down to the gold-embossed black inner box w its custom-cut foam bedding for each piece. The stylized pieces are spectacular, particularly the rook knight & bishop. A perfect combination of refined geometry and the slight textured irregularity inherent to concrete. Simply WOW.

I bought two pendants from Materiallmmaterial as gifts for my mother and my aunt. They are absolutely gorgeous. They are weighty, but not too heavy. Intricate, but solid. I love them. They arrived very quickly, and were beautifully packaged. I look forward to buying one for myself!

"The Factory" is far more impressive, far more substantial, and far more majestic than the photos would ever demonstrate. It's perfect for my office; small enough to not overwhelm, yet intriguing enough to be a unique conversation piece. I also have to mention the packing. This was wrapped incredibly well, and would easily survive even the roughest transport. This is way beyond what I was hoping for, I would highly endorse both this item and this seller.
