Plenty of people ask where the journey of Kelham Island Concrete began, the answer is simple, in the industrial heart of Sheffield. Join SSA for a tour of the KIC workshop, to learn about the craft, their tools and their past, present and future projects. 

Kelham Island Concrete was started by Oliver Miller, officially as a limited company on the 13th June 2017, although 'behind the scenes' concrete investigation and experimentation, was probably going on over a year before that. Oliver, a highly skilled carpenter, has worked in the building industry since qualifying in 2005. After working on various projects, Oliver decided to venture out and expand his horizons on to a new and exciting project.

 

With a creative passion for design and being a skilled and experienced craftsmen, he decided to experiment with an interesting material, which most people would never associate with bespoke furniture and design; the interesting use of concrete. Oliver decided to explore a new product, industry and art form. Then, Kelham Island Concrete was born!

 

In March 2017, Kelham Island Concrete had the pleasure of welcoming Conor Povall to the team. Conor, a graduate with a masters in Furniture Design, has embraced the Kelham Island Concrete vision and dream. His dedication and design talents have allowed Kelham Island Concrete to grow and develop, and his commitment has been crucial to the business success so far.
