Stitching concrete by Florian Schmid

October 19th, 2011 by retail design blog

Stitching concrete is a project by using the new material Concrete Canvas.It combines the softness of cloth with the stability of concrete. Once brought in the final shape, you just have to water the material and within 24h it will alomst harden out completely. The challenge was to get into the material and bring it from its rawness to something new. Approching trough patterns, origami and stitchings a unique series of stools got born. Waterproof, fireproof, resistant against UV, durable. The fibre reinforcement makes it strong and the cloth gives back a warm atmosphere.
