Could you tell us about how the company started?
Kast’s founder, Tim Bayes, started working with concrete over 25 years ago. Drawn to the purity of this material, Tim quickly realised the potential it had for contemporary product design. With a natural affinity towards engineering and a degree in Fine Art, he began working with this ‘liquid stone’ and was convinced that it could become the ideal material for interior products. From designing furniture to creating contemporary interior surfaces, realising this vision took many years of development, researching and refining both the precise mix of concrete and complex casting processes. Tim grew his team and continued to innovate, pushing the boundaries of how concrete can be used. The team is now made up of skilled designers and makers that bring specialist knowledge and experience to every step of the process. Kast is the product of all these years of experience, condensed into a refined range of luxury concrete basins.
