Concrete Chair by Jonas Bohlin

Concrete Chair by Jonas Bohlin

Concrete Chair by Swedish designer Jonas Bohlin

Jonas Bohlin started off by making a kind of scandalous success in terms of offended Swedish functionalism at the 1981 graduation show at Konstfack, the National College of Arts, Craft and Design, in Stockholm. “We never quite recoverd from the shock his chair “Concrete” created in the Swedish design community”. Being meant as a piece of sculpture in an artistic installation, the chair of steel and concrete was obviously epitomizing a Swedish idea of post-modernism, why it was produced in a limited edition, and is currently a collector’s item.

Moroccan Bank built around a Bench by Norman Foster 4

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.
