Are you under the impression concrete can only be used in construction? Only good for big bulky buildings, intercontinental bridges, large roads, and Hoover dams? Well, Kast Studios prefers to use concrete for art! All products are designed and built in Toronto using the highest quality materials to make sure pieces last a lifetime. Their high quality laser cut acrylic totems capture light and offer themselves as funky accent pieces to your home. Below are some of Kast Studio’s most solid pieces.

Exist Sign — $75
Here’s a good piece to hang above your door reminding you to live a little as you enter the cold cruel world. Ok, a little dramatic, but the sign holds value. It’s important to get out and be yourself, work as hard as you can, and relax at the end of the day. The Exist signs are limited edition made from thick laser cut acrylic. Think it’s missing that Exit sign glow? The Exist sign is slightly translucent and can be backlit in red!
“The Greatest” Statue — $65
We’ve all seen the stunning photo, blown up billboard size, of the greatest boxer of all time standing over his fallen opponent, but I don’t think we’ve seen it in acrylic form. The statue is perfect for boxing and pop culture fans looking to add flair to their living space. The laser cut acrylic piece is set upon a solid concrete base. Standing eight inches tall this piece is also limited edition.
“Toronto Tower” — $40
There’s no bigger or more iconic Toronto landmark, literally towering over the entire city. Now it’s time to bring that towering icon into your home. The towers come in two sizes, sixteen inch and eight inch, with four colours: green, orange, pink, and blue. The acrylic naturally captures and amplifies light, which gives the tower a realistic glow. The towers are a fun nod to living in the world’s greatest city!
Neon Statue of David — $40
Said to be one of the most flawless statues in existence, Michelangelo’s Statue of David is located in the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence. Instead of going on a EuroTrip, Kast Studios designed a cheeky pop piece allowing you to admire the statue from your sofa. The eight inch piece is fastened to a sturdy concrete base offered in pink and green. Perfect for any art lover or fan of the ultimate male figure.
