This hyperbolic prototype, inspired by the concrete experiments of Roni Horn’s chair, is the first adaptation of kutleh, as it explores the wild and boundless possibilities of this material.
Blocks of kutleh draw from selective color spectra that evoke the natural stones in the Levant and the Mediterranean. kutleh presents itself as a redefined raw material, which designers can carve out their limitless creations from, to introduce innovative forms.
While it is important for kutleh to reﬂect the local feel of their region, they think of the project as one that extends beyond boundaries. Stone waste is produced all over the world, and they see themselves producing localized collections that reflect the lands of the raw materials. The variation of colors and forms that spring from different locations is where the beauty lies.
