This tableware by Dutch designer Jochem de Wit is made of concrete, cast glass and brick.
De Wit presented the collection at DMY Berlin earlier this month.

Here's some more information from the designer:
My graduation project consists of different parts made of different materials.
The service consists of ceramic plates and soup bowls made of glazed concrete with spoons of beech veneer as well as a series of cast shot glasses, egg cups, and cups, of bronze brick.
The inspiration for my graduation project is what surrounds me day-to-day.
That environment, like for most people, is the urban environment and I want to focus on the specific beauty of the jagged edges of messy urban areas.
These are not places designed to give a feeling for life. They are, for me, an important element in the design process.
The physical contact with the materials is a touchstone. Stone, clay, glass, metal, wood on location are mostly not clean, neat, new or tight. In recognition of this a major role of my work is coincidence and not ordered design.
