Concrochet

Website | 2017 -

Concrochet is a playful experiment with our hard construction material to bring its soft side to a totally different context. While concrete is considered the hardest man-made material on each, it is interesting to explore different fabrication techniques that explore the delicate side of concrete.Exploring different techniques, yielded to a more flexible, fabric like, concrete material, which resembles crochet (the French word for lace). While the new materials are flexible and seemingly tender, they still hold the tough characteristic of concrete at heat, making them quite suitable for outdoor table runners, sheds.

Given the small concrete cross section in the newly produced fabric, so the more water exposure they get over the years, the more curable, and more sturdy, the materials become. Currently I am exploring different patterns, and larger scales to finalize a set of final market patch products.
