Surprisingly Detailed Concrete Sofa – The Future Of Park Benches?

While this chesterfield sofa might look like it’s made from a bland gray leather, believe it or not it’s actually made from concrete. It was created by a UK-based company called Gray Concrete, appropriately enough, for the 100% Design exhibition in London, and the incredible amount of detail in it was captured using the company’s special molding techniques. Not only does it look like it’s made from actual leather, but they went the extra mile by ensuring the cushions have ‘bum prints’ and you’ll even find a concrete fifty pence coin stuck behind one of them. Now obviously the piece was created to show just how versatile concrete can be, but I think you could really class up a city by replacing its traditional park benches with durable, concrete reproductions of famous pieces of furniture.
