Our story started 2014 when Luka Zevnik made the decision to start his own business. First steps were done in the fields of construction chemistry, concrete admixture production and in consulting. In 2019, we continued our passion in material science with even more creative ideas: formulating special cementitious materials for design and architecture industry. Zevnik Lab is today a place of creativity, where material science and high-end technology meet the design and product's functionality of the designer's vision.
Luka Zevnik finished his PhD research work at National Institute of Chemistry and University of Ljubljana in chemical engineering. Since 2006, he has been working in the field of construction chemistry: started in Slovenian National Building and Civil Engineering Institute (ZAG), continued at TKK as engineer and R&D manager in the field of chemical admixtures. In 2014, he started his own company with consulting and formulating in concrete industry and in construction chemistry. In 2020, he and his colleagues started to work with architects and designers, resulting in founding the company Zevnik Lab.
Our vision is to show the useful and aesthetic value of concrete in everyday life, at home and also at work. We want to show that concrete is not only a rough material used for industrial purposes; but also that it can be made into sophisticated products expressed in various natural materials, colors, weights, durability characteristics and execution techniques. We want to bring people closer to the authenticity and homeliness of concrete as a natural material.
