Surface Regeneration - Folded Concrete

Concrete is pleated and folded to look like a fabric cloth.
Surface is shaped and textured and projected in a width space or on a wall, it suggests the idea of a structured, but movable environ­ment.

Concrete adopted in the realization of the piece is a photo catalytic one. Because of Titanium dioxide contained inside, the photo catalytic cement breaks down organic polluted molecules in the air and transforms them into harmless substances. Hence it’s not only interesting for the external effect, but also for its sustainable property.
It’s suitable for external façades and indoor walls.
