'Bag Stool' by Quinze + Milan

For the first time in its existence the Belgian manufacturer Quinze & Milan goes concrete!

Referencing material consumption, Gitta Gschwendtner has created concrete and woodcrete stools cast from moulds based on paper shopping bags. Their individual, irregular form is created during the casting process. This playful design looks like it’s popping up right from the ground.

The concrete version is suited for outdoor use and the woodcrete version for indoor use. This is a lighter version made up from a mixture of concrete and wood fibres which makes it lighter and a more environmentally friendly.
