this furniture series uses a light weight concrete system. while the material application makes these seating units easy to transport and shift, it still incorporates the look and feel of a concrete product. with a special sealing agent, the concrete furniture is virtually free of maintenance.

the collection, consisting of a stool, bench and 2-seater, takes its shape from the mushrooms commonly seen in gardens. moreover, the concrete material allows different colours to be applied, making the furniture adaptable to various surroundings.
