The first thing that comes to mind when thought about concrete could be: cold, hard, grey, heavy, rough and so on. By experimenting with concrete my desire to change it’s characteristics increased. To do so I experimented with lots of concrete samples to create more sympathetically shaped colour full beads with different scents which are able to provide a feeling of domesticity, sensitivity, grace and intimacy. Since concrete is known for being water resistant and heat/cold resistant I added healing properties by constructing the beads into a bath mat. The characteristic roughness of the texture of the concrete beads keeps your feet soft and free from excess callus, the beads feel pleasant and it’s massaging nature stimulates your blood circulation.
