By studying the movement and folds of fabric, Sam Jennings, contemporary furniture designer from Falmouth University, created a stool that does not follow the standard rules of design.

 

 

With the use of a special material called Concrete Canvas TM, Sam moulded the legs of the stool into a soft drape mimicking the shape of unfolded fabric. The wooden seat sits perfectly on the apparently soft folds, connected via a loop in the wood.

 

 

 

 

Concrete Canvas TM is a material usually used in the civil and construction sectors to rapidly build shelters. It is a flexible cement impregnated fabric that becomes hard when wet to form a thin, waterproof and fireproof durable concrete layer.
