The Concrete Cities Coasters

The Concrete Cities project presents a series of contemporary design souvenirs for the modern traveler and the city lover, in the form of concrete coasters.

This contemporary souvenir diverges from its traditional ancestors, and becomes a design everyday-use object, decorative yet functional, allowing the user to recall memories of his favorite cities, while enjoying a cup of coffee.
