By combining concrete with silicone rubber, a contrasting material of is created. The designer has managed to fuse concrete and silicon to produce a composition of opposites. The material has both heavy and light elements and is both translucent and opaque. The rough meeting of the two materials gives an organic look to the final product, fusing soft and hard.
The manufactuer states that the warmth of the silicone juxtaposes the industrial appearance of the concrete, which in fact makes both elements appear warmer. The effect is enhanced by placing a light source behind the material. More on Renate Vos’ work is here.
