RECAST - CONCRETE STOOLS
A collection of stools inspired by the virtues and preconceptions of concrete. The project led to the development of a lightweight stackable concrete stool. The tops are created as a smooth, comfortable surface which envelops and upholsters its supporting and reinforcing steel legs.The central handle encourages the stool to be touched and lifted, communicating its surprisingly refined surface and unexpected lightness.
The combination of galvanized steel and concrete provides a material combination which adjusts to its surroundings. If kept indoors the zinc will remain bright and the concrete will maintain its satin finish. But if kept out doors the zinc will settle to a soft white finish and the concrete will also soften into its surroundings.
