Phoenix-based product designer, Larry Kornegay, found inspiration for these containers from colored quartz crystals that he inherited from his father. Introduced in 2010 to the Kornegay Design’s product line of finely crafted pre-cast concrete site furnishings, the Quartz Series containers are quirky and fun yet bold and sophisticated.
Dynamic intersecting planes comprise the six faceted sides of each of the four containers in the series which are highlighted by the interplay of light and shadow – producing an alternating display of crisp and soft edges. To complement the nature of the Quartz Series, Kornegay custom-mixed integral concrete pigments in crystal-inspired hues.
These containers are heavy, with weights of up to 2200 pounds, a characteristic Larry Kornegay doesn’t apologize for. He says, “We make these with the intent of providing long-term value and beauty, they need to withstand extreme weather environments and heavy pedestrian traffic.”
