Stitching Concrete by Florian Schmid


German designer Florian Schmid has developed Stitching Concrete – a collection of stools made by folding fabric that’s impregnated with cement.

The stools are made from a material called Concrete Canvas – a recently developed technology whereby cement impregnated fabric hardens to form a durable, fire and waterproof surface.

Schmid folds the Concrete Canvas and stitches the edges together with brightly coloured thread, then supports it on a wooden mould while it’s drenched in water and allowed to harden.
