Florian Schmid is a graduate industrial designer from Hochschule München. His final project is called ‘Stitching Concrete’, inspired by the contrast of the materials concrete and canvas. The concrete cloth can be molded and then within 24 hours it hardens. It feels like cloth but has the strength of concrete.

“Stitching concrete is a project by using the new material Concrete Canvas. It combines the softness of cloth with the stability of concrete. Once brought in the final shape, you just have to water the material and within 24h it will almost harden out completely.

The challenge was to get into the material and bring it from its rawness to something new. Approaching trough patterns, origami, and stitching a unique series of stools got born. Waterproof, fireproof, resistant against UV, durable. The fiber reinforcement makes it strong and the cloth gives back a warm atmosphere.”
