Wonderful tones all around! Use of the theme seems well executed :)
The novelties are my favourite part, though I can't help but feel as if the deskmat could have used a similar style to match the rest a bit more.

I'm a fan of both the colorway and especially the novelties. Though it might seem like an incongruent suggestion, I'd like to see renders with more board colors. I think this set would look great on beige, for starters (see the KBDfans D60 Lite, currently in GB, for example), which wouldn't be much of a departure from brutalist gray. But it would look great in almost any color, and owners of boards of various colors is a bigger market. Another color that would be appropriate is blue—architecture, including brutalist architecture, commonly appears surrounded by sky.

This post has been interesting to see people get opinionated about historically and theoretically accurate Brutalist aesthetics, while every other week a new GMK set about the most surface-level, reductive, and essentialist understanding of East Asian culture gets funneled along with little fuss.

The difference for me is that I know a bit about Brutalist architecture and very little about Asian culture, so I don't feel confident criticizing those sets. But you are right that this is a bad look and I will try to stay less quiet when I have a bad feeling about one of those sets.

That said, I see that some of the criticism of this set was taken to heart and that's great. The colors look good for me, but the design does not represent what I find fascinating about Brutalism. Good luck with the IC!

Thank you! Colorful renders are coming soon, I'll make sure to make beige and blue ones as well!
