On 20th July 1969 the first human took the first steps on the surface of the moon. This event captured the imagination of the entire world and catapulted us into the space-age. Now each of us can experience a small slice of this event through DeskSpace – the most detailed model of the lunar surface currently available at this scale.
Created using data from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, the beautiful topography of the far side of the moon has been recreated using jewellery-grade concrete. Hand-finished and presented on a precision machine space-grade aluminium base, this is a truly unique and fascinating item that will be a talking point in any home or office.
Apollo 11 50th Anniversary
It was 50 years ago that the first Apollo landing took place. With such an important anniversary, we understand that space enthusiasts need special items for their collections.
We have produced the most iconic part of the lunar landscape and as a special gift for our crowdfunding supporters, we are including special additional items that pay homage to the lunar landing, just for our supporters to show our appreciation.
Available in two sizes, your lunar surface display item is beautifully presented in its own gift box. The larger version can be wall hung or displayed on a shelf, while the small version is ideal as part of a coffee table display or as a desk top item.
Lunar Surface - Large
Measuring 180mm x 180mm, this display piece is perfect for a wall or shelf. Detailing the most stunning areas of the moon surface that is littered with craters due to the constant bombardment of meteorites across many millions of years. This gradual disintegration of the lunar surface gives it its distinctive look that we are all so familiar with.
Lunar Surface - Regular
As a 100mm x 100mm concrete piece, this intricate lunar surface model rests on its precision machined and anodized base with a perfectly polished mirror logo. This item matches all our other DeskSpace pieces and can form a part of a beautiful space-themed collection. You can be sure that there will be the same attention to detail and consistent beauty across the entire range.
From the dawn of time, the moon has captured our hearts and our imaginations. Now, you can bring the moon’s lunar surface into your home. Using NASA landscape data, we have faithfully recreated the moon’s stunningly cratered topography from beautiful jewellery grade concrete. When highlighted under a direct light source, it is striking and intricately detailed – almost as beautiful as the real thing.
Paying homage to the perilous Apollo 11 mission we've created a fully bespoke ballpoint pen and rocket stand. The Apollo Pen stands tall looking ready to take off next to the Lunar Surface. A striking reminder of the great strides humanity has taken to reach the stars every time you use it. We also include a custom made hardback notebook, with the DeskSpace logo debossed on the bottom left corner.
Both the pen and base are precision CNC machined out of aerospace-grade aluminium using custom made cutting tools. The parts are then anodized in deep black and assembled with a near-perfect fit.
Every one of us has looked to the stars and wondered about other worlds and the expanse of time and space. Our moon is but a tiny part of the night sky and yet it holds such wonder as it is so easily seen with the naked eye. Having a tiny piece of the moon as a stylish display item makes a wonderful gift for anyone who holds a fascination with space.
Any home that is full of curious minds and a fascination of space deserves to have beautiful items that nurture that curiosity and provoke conversation – the DeskSpace lunar surface model does exactly that. Ideal for a family home as a coffee table centrepiece, this model will bring the family together and provides a piece of beauty for any environment.

We worked tirelessly to source the exact mineral most suited to represent the complexities and character of the lunar surface. We carefully selected only craftsmen who create jewellery from concrete. Portland cement is used as the foundation for each moulded concrete part, with the level of bubbles carefully controlled with each piece coming out truly unique. This timeless process produces only the most beautiful results and creates a piece that is unique and robust.
We wanted to stay true to the unique beauty of the portland cement material. In order to best show the unique beauty of every impact crater, we recommend lighting each piece parallel to the main surface to highlight the dips and shadows of intricate texture. This can easily be achieved with either a desktop lamp for ceiling light for when the large piece is hung on a wall.
Included with your DeskSpace Lunar Surface is a high quality, a heavyweight book designed to provide you with interesting, intriguing and fun facts about the Moon and lunar landing. The book offers detailed images and a clever design that allows it to nestle inside the box, then unfold to reveal a stunning full-bleed image of the moon. This is the perfect addition to the Lunar Surface and turns it from a curiosity into a practical gift for all space enthusiasts.
We have paid close attention to every detail of the unboxing experience. We pride ourselves on quality and this comes down to every part including the packaging. Each Lunar Surface comes in a high-quality ridged gift box, with the concrete model and base protected with layers of EVA foam. The set also includes a bespoke information booklet, letter of authenticity with a unique serial number and a cleaning cloth.
We are proud to present the Lunar Surface model as the next part on our space-themed journey. The base of the small Lunar Surface perfectly matches the Solar System Mood Lamp and the solar system planet set. Each item has been carefully crafted to the correct proportions to sit perfectly alongside each other and even comes with matching gift boxes and accessories packs. Once you buy one item from DeskSpace, you will never turn back.
We are excited to announce that we will be donating a Lunar Surface Large concrete panel to a number of schools for the blind across the US and Hong Kong. We think STEM education is crucially important and feel this project would give a unique experience for blind students to get a tactile representation of the lunar surface that they might not have had access to before. For every US$2500 (HKD20K) we raise on this campaign we donate one set of the large lunar surface concrete panels to a school for the blind.
The process of creating the DeskSpace Lunar Surface involves a lengthy process of casting, curing, finishing and CNC machining. Our craftsmen then carefully clean up the intricate lunar surface and then assemble each piece. The process may be lengthy, but we know that perfection only comes with time.
The process is as follows:
Here's a small sample of the hundreds of positive comments left by some of our thousands of happy customers.
At DeskX we pride ourselves on quality and have hundreds of positive reviews piling up from the launch of our first product. We want to make sure you are 100% happy with your DeskSpace products. If you feel there are any issues with your product you can contact us directly at email@example.com and we will be there to help resolve any issues until you're completely satisfied.
Please note in order to best show the unique beauty of every impact crater, we recommend lighting each piece parallel to the main surface to highlight the dips and shadows of intricate texture. This can easily be achieved with either a desktop lamp for ceiling light for when the large piece is hung on a wall.
Our gemstones are products of nature and the materials that make up the concrete are also mineral-based. Therefore variations in colour, pattern, texture and veining from piece to piece are unavoidable. No two pieces will be exactly alike, this is what makes your DeskSpace completely unique. These differences and variations create the beauty of natural handcrafted gemstones and other organic materials.
We try our absolute best to match each gemstone and cement piece as closely as possible as the samples showed online, but these are put in place to give you a general idea about the appearance of each of the gemstones or lunar surface. Please note that changes in lighting may cause the products to look slightly different in real life than those shown in images online and that multiple orders of the same item might not be an exact match.
