Concrete Textile Furniture

“Concrete Textile” objects from very thinly rolled sheets of textured concrete, treating this traditionally solid industrial material as though it were fabric. The furniture pieces can be used as a low coffee table or side table. These hollow pieces appear deceptively airy and fine – but they are in fact extremely robust. The inside surfaces feature patterned white cement while the outside texture is rough, raw and grey-coloured.
