Could you imagine soft concrete? Have a look, German designer Florian Schmid has done the impossible by creating the Stitching Concrete stools. This project was realized by using the new material Concrete Canvas which combines the softness of cloth with the stability of concrete. These stools are made by folding fabric that’s impregnated with cement then drenching it in water. It consists of cement layered between fabric and a PVC backing. Once soaked it can be manipulated for a few hours before hardening. A wooden mold supports it while drying within 24 hours. I can not but note some interesting features such as waterproofness, fire resistance, resistance against UV and durability.
