The Factory is an interactive rolling ball sculpture inspired by the Brutalist architecture of the last century, particularly the Industrial era and the functional architectural elements used in Cement and Steel factories. The steel balls start rolling from their starting point on top of the building towards their final destination, taking a whimsical journey through the various intricate spaces.

This piece took the designers at Material Immaterial Studio years to develop. It is an incredible display of their mastery over concrete and truly is a beautiful work of art.

Each concrete piece is unique; bubbles, small imperfections, and slight variations in color are part of the piece’s singularity and character. Concrete is a live material. Your piece will age and change over time with exposure to air and with wear, just as concrete does in monuments and buildings. Learn more.

Stunning work of design

We love the Factory! The details are exquisite, and the style evokes brutalism: minimalist, honest, unassuming, heroic. The Factory proudly occupies a spot in our living room!

A Miniature Masterpiece

This piece is an amazingly detailed miniature sculpture. It is remarkable how something so small can, at the same time, be so monumental. Complex, yet streamlined, the design style is deco surrealist brutalist modernism. Influences must include the great Italian surrealist Giorgio de Chirico, and the stairway trajectories bring to mind M. C. Escher. The sharpness of the detail achieved in concrete at such small scale is remarkable. The work is very photogenic, and wonderful effects can be achieved by varying the location and intensity of the lighting. The kinetic aspect of the piece is very enjoyable. It is very important to place it on a level surface to assure a proper flight of the steel balls through the course. It takes 18 seconds for a ball to make it from the top tower to the bottom reservoir. Running multiple balls through the course at the same time can be mesmerizing.

Extremely High Quality

I am very interested in Brutalistic architecture and this piece just spoke to me. The marble-run component of it didn't really attract me, but it still is very elegant and gives your eye a reason to follow all the details. Arrived very well packaged, with no chips, cracks, or pits. The sculpture is very smooth, with a satisfying weight. The bottom has about 1/8" of corkboard so it doesn't scratch up any surface it rests on. The dimensions are listed on the site but just be aware what that translates to in reality. I could imagine some people expecting an expensive concrete sculpture to be substantial in size, and being disappointed when this arrives.
