Stitching Concrete is Designed to Be Deceptively Indestructible

Stitching Concrete is a set of cement stools deceptively designed to look like fabric. Stitching Concrete was created by Florian Schmid, who used a complicated process involving multiple steps to bring these unique seats to life.

The process of created stitched-together concrete is extensive, but what it basically comprises of is "cement layered between fabric and a PVC backing. Once soaked it can be manipulated for a few hours before hardening." During those few hours, Schmid folded and stitched the concrete canvas together to form the stools seen here. The stools give off the appearance of fabric, but are a lot sturdier and are UV and fireproof. You can see a small sample of Stitching Concrete here along with a ton of other unconventional concrete creations from the Trend Hunter archives.
