Concrete is no longer associated with the grey tones of the city. The material now has a warmer, more organic feel when used in furniture, lighting, mirrors and accessories. These shapes are rounder, more reminiscent of nature than urban environments. There are references to river rocks, sculpture and artistic motifs.
