The starting point of this project was the designers love of cement.
This piece is a part of a collection named Entrance and includes 6 wall mounted, sculptural objects/shelves made of untreated 5 mm thick cement sheet. Each piece is unique and hand-crafted by the designers themselves. The fiber-cement is from Swiss Pearl, a cement factory in Switzerland. The material, traditionally used as facade cladding and roof tiles, has unique properties in terms of strength, moldability and texture. The molding process allows the character of the material to shine through and influence the end product.
The collection is a further development of chosen objects from an exhibition the designers held in 2015 named “Entrance to a Material”. The name was referring to the designers entrance to that unknown material and also the context of the objects, which were storage-objects designed for the entrance of a home.
