We are skilled, creative and engaging craftsmen
Our ideas are often worth being cast in concrete...
Pur Béton is a love story between a craftsman, founder Paul Rosa with multiple talents and passions, and concrete, a substance with infinite possibilities.
Creating a mix to shape the unusual, pushing the boundaries of moulding, designing textures and refining finishes is an art on the fringe of engineering. A daily technical and creative challenge.
A professional graphic designer and entrepreneur, Catherine Fréchette didn’t hesitate one second in joining Rosa at the helm of Pur Béton. Her touch can be felt in every sphere of the company.
Since 2009, Pur Béton stands out for the quality of its finishes as well as the elegance of its designs.
"We are passionate about concrete — so much that we have dedicated our lives to it! Nearly untamable, this material has inimitable qualities that make it alive in our eyes. Working with concrete calls for a communion between the artisan and the matter; once a piece is taken out of its mould, we are inevitably drawn to its unique marks and the effects of its transformation. Each piece irrevocably abides by the laws of gravity and chemistry, giving it a soothing humanity and authenticity.”
For over 12 years we have hand-casted thousands of concrete parts of all sizes, shapes and functions.
With this know-how, we are now focusing on developing a collection of distinctive products with simple shapes and clean lines that should stand the test of time while being timeless.
Though every piece in this collection is made with great care and precision, no two are identical. Each has its own marks, nuances and charms and will blend in your environment like an organic, engaging and... useful work of art.
All our products are fully designed and manufactured in our workshop. We are happy to ship them within and outside Canada.
