As observed by João Manuel Mimoso… this is the second life phase of this mold. The first life phase could be the brick with the hatched inner surface.

In this mold update the following changes were made:

  • the core was polished to give the bricks a glossy underside, completely altering the visual aspect
  • the logo inscription was made deeper and sharper,
