Rooms Used Concrete and Marble for Its 'Life on Earth' Collection

In a series of decisively Brutalist furniture, Rooms—a Tbilisi-based design duo—communicates the beauty of nomadic forms. The collection, which is thematically dubbed 'Life on Earth,' on one hand references speculations about creating a livable environment on Mars and, on the other, it pays homage to the dynamic between Asian and European culture from the personal childhood experiences of Rooms' founders — Nata Janberidze and Keti Toloraia.

The brutalist furniture collection consists of 12 pieces that are abstract and raw. The shapes, forms and materials build on architectural movements, ultimately translating the motifs of grand buildings to small everyday objects. Curious pieces in the brutalist furniture line include the Primitive Coffee Table in marble, which boasts a semi-spherical and asymmetrically placed base and the Bus Stop Bench, which takes cues from Soviet bus stops.
