Fabric is an outdoor seating collection, designed by Spanish product designer Miriam Estévez, that marries concrete and canvas. Each seat is made of a synthetic layer composed of a specific, dry concrete and PVC sheet formula.

The 5mm material is flexible, allowing each seat to be moulded while dry. When hydrated, the composite quickly hardens, forming a thin, tough layer that is long lasting, waterproof, and fire-resistant.

The collection is based on the results of structural research. In addition to the material itself, the project focuses on pattern design techniques and geometry in order to create stable, volumetric shapes that can stand on their own without supplementary support.

Fabric is a unique series of seats that merge textile warmth with concrete coldness.
