Urban nature: Flowering islands in the middle of concrete

More and more people are moving into cities. Urban space is becoming more and more dense and expansive. In times of climate change and traffic collapse, inhabitants are facing major challenges: heat, heavy rain, particulate matter, waste.

Part 4: Cotton, felt and latex

100% natural latex. On top of the jute material on the seating area, but also for the armrests and all around we are now applying a layer of 100% natural latex. The latex is delivered in large blocks and we cut it down to the needed sizes in the correct height and length using our large scale vertical saw. This process takes experience and craftsmanship, as the material is very soft and any push or pull in the wrong direction will result in an uneven cut.
