BKLYN Designs: Pb-R Surface by Wüd Furniture Design

There's been a lot of focus on counter tops lately, as designers try to guess what will follow granite as the "must have" material.
Wüd Furniture Design
was proud to showcase a new option at BKLYN Designs — Pb-R. Created by encasing thin sheets of lead in a clear epoxy resin, Pb-R (a play off of lead's elemental symbol, Pb) has been embraced by Wüd and is being utilized as a surface for kitchen counters, tables and shelving and storage units...

Pb-R is silky smooth to the touch and the clear resin allows the industrial look of the metal to show through (see, above). The resin is scratch, heat and stain resistant. In addition to metal, Wüd has experimented with encasing wood in the resin, too.
