KONKRET

Bengtsson, Jennifer (2015) In Diploma work IDEL01
Industrial Design
Abstract
The essence of the project is based on how
wear affects a product. I saw a flaw in
the furniture industry that mass-produces
products with materials that are negatively
affected by wear and tear. These products
have a short lifespan and contributes to the
”throw-away” culture where the product is
either replaced or thrown away more often
than necessary.
I wanted to make a living-room table that
during usage would form a bond with the user
and allow the wear to be a part of the aesthetic
expression. This resulted in the Konkret table
which is made out of steel and concrete. The
table can be upgraded and personalized by the
user. All components are exchangeable and
the product is a flat-package.
