Made for Dutch Invertuals – “Harvest” Expo
A series of primitive concrete prefab elements. The new primitives are sculpted out of bigger concrete waste blocks. The concrete blocks are threated like natural stones with specific pigments and waxes in order to create new textures, and make the concrete feel like a new natural material. This material exploration resulted in a series of abstract benches and side tables.
