Concrete Furniture

23/03/2010

O-Lithas is a collection of outdoor/indoor furniture based on the idea of making stone-like slabs appear to be light and fluid like a wave. The project started as play of words combining the Greek word ‘Lithos’ (Stone), with the Spanish words ‘Ola’ (Wave) and ‘Olita’ (tiny wave), and is now evolved into a new and consistent means to integrate steel and cement with Design.

The resulting pieces are minimalist, long lasting, and eco-friendly. The wavy pattern not only accounts for a unique timeless aesthetic, and common language, but also functions as structural reinforcement along the span of the slab, and to fit the radius of the metal bar base for a complete integration of materials.
