Today at Dezeen Platform: Florian Schmid
Dezeen Platform: Florian Schmid presents his Stitching Concrete Project at our micro-exhibition Dezeen Platform in Dezeen Space today.
The Munich-based industrial designer's chairs were published on Dezeen in August.
The project uses the material Concrete Canvas, which was featured on Dezeen in 2009.
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.
The stools can be used indoors or outdoors. The material is durable against UV, fireproofed and water resistant.
Schmid developed the project while studying at the Hochschule München in Germany.
For more information about the design, testing and construction process see our published story about Florian's chairs.
Each day, for 30 days, a different designer will use a one metre by one metre space to exhibit their work at Dezeen Space. See the full lineup for Dezeen Platform here.
