Paper, glue, and pulverized stone are soaked and mixed to produce a mash. This mash is filled into two simple but very precise brick moulds and then left to itself. The result is shelves, stools and other small items of furniture. As hard as stone.
Sandra Böhm is a designer with a special interest in materials. Before studying product design she trained as a florist. This influenced her decision to work with natural materials. Her works reflect her fascination for natural structures, shapes and states. Due to her studies in the faculty of product design at the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design, Germany, her interest in materials is complemented by her wish to question archetypes and conventions, and this is also reflected in her projects.
