Kyoto

Year 2010

Kyoto is a range of table and benches made from concrete. Our goal was to challenge the perception that concrete is a cold and rough material. By combining reinforcement techniques, we were able to make the product slimmer and more elegant than conventional concrete furniture. The soft shapes and color pigments in the concrete also contributes to the feel of a lighter and
more welcoming product. Kyoto is close to maintenance free, a huge plus for outdoor furniture.
In 2010 it received the Award for Design Excellence from the Norwegian Centre for Design
and Architecture.
