Concrete canvas series, Console table

 


Concrete Canvas is a series of concrete tables and consoles from Neal Aronowitz Design who is famous for his sculpturally inspired furniture and lighting pieces.

Concrete has always been used widely in various construction technologies and also in art, design and architecture. The Concrete canvas is an innovative construction material made of Geo synthetic cement mats. This flexible cement infused fabric hardens to form a thin, durable, weather resistant layer which can be literally rolled !

The ‘Concrete Canvas’ series launched by Architect cum designer Neal Aronnowitz represents fluid form of ‘concrete cloth on a roll’. The Whorl tables and consoles is a collection of minimalist furniture design as an antithesis to the conservative and heavy forms of concrete furnishings.

Finished with a light skim hand coating the whorl series are everyday objects which stand out due to its aesthetics curves. As per the designer the main challenge was in stretching the tensile strength of the material to mold it in its sculptural form. Since the table and console series were unique in design and form, a special casting and molding techniques was developed by the designer.

Enso table – 

The Enso table which is next in series to Whorl table and console draws its inspiration from Japanese ink painting. Similar to a swift, creative and expressive single stoke of the brush, the Enso table is a wall fastened furniture. The lightness and strength of the Concrete canvas helps to express the eye-catching form and concept behind the Enso table.
