Some languages, for instance Dutch and German, use the word “bank” for both a bank (the building as well as the company) and for a bench. Foster and Partners have built a new office for a Moroccan bank around an striking concrete bench that functions as a centerpiece of the building. It is placed under the dome – frequently used in Moroccan buildings – and connecting with it.

Concrete Cloth Chair by Jakub (Kuba) Szczęsny

Polish designer Jakub (Kuba) Szczęsny of Centrala Design has another take on concrete canvas as material for a chair. He simply put the cloth in cardboard tubes and wetted them.

The chair was developped in a designers in residence program Rooted Design for Routed living, bringing together Norwegian and Polish designers.

Here is an extensive interview with him. It is clear Jakub is inspired by the Dutch Ruff:
