singapore designer fung kwok pan set out to prove cold industrial materials like steel and concrete can be comfortable with the concretus chair. the chair is made from small concrete tiles that are linked together using small pieces of stainless steel wire. the tiles are made one by one using silicone molds that were based off positive forms made from MDF. these tiles are molded and mounted to a wire backing. the tiles are then linked together and tied to the black metal frame using a thin nylon string. the resulting seat conforms to the sitter’s body cradling them in the chair and showing how surprisingly conformable concrete can be.
