Beautiful designs become more powerful when understanding some of the processes required to bring them to life. While we often visualize materials being carved, constructed, and assembled, some of our favorite designs come from materials that are poured and molded. From concrete to resin to terrazzo, this week we’re showcasing five of our favorite designs that utilize poured materials to create dynamic additions to our spaces.
Lucidi & Pevere
Visible concrete is part of the expressive language of modern architecture and interiors. With Aplomb, Foscarini has introduced a product that uses this material with a spirit and technology that is entirely original. Aplomb is a contemporary and refined suspension lamp that utilizes concrete in an innovative and unique way. The result is a success thanks to the use of a special concrete variety that is particularly fluid in moulding. Also available as a sconce. Suspension light available in three sizes with the choice of white, gray, or brown concrete.
Angelo Mangiarotti
Clizia introduces a touch of glamour and refinement not often attributed to concrete. With its curvaceous, sculptural silhouette, Mangiarotti’s design defies gravity with an elegantly cantilevered form. When in use, Clizia is a functional and comfortable seat; Standing alone, the design resembles a work of art. Now available in cast concrete, as well as white Carrara marble, Travertine, and black Marquina marble.
Birgitte Due Madsen
Poly is the name of this delicate polychrome composition derived from Birgitte Due Madsen’s refined selection of colors. Due Madsen has created a functional work of art, while honoring her subtle, minimalist aesthetic. The haze within the resin gives the piece a depth where light and shadow continuously changes our perception of the contours of the table. Made to order in two colorway options.
Altherr Désile Park
Ghia’s soft forms and tactile materials balance the geometric and the organic, resulting in a sense of harmony and calm. In dark or light terrazzo, Ghia takes on a dynamic stylishness. This new low table system has an array of form and finish options to create  combinations that harmonize with any seating collection or setting. Available in two shapes and three sizes, Ghia allows for creative customization.

Anders Engholm
Ergonomic and versatile, Aveny-T’s seat and back are made of recycled moulded plastic, utilizing a material and technique that is poured and sustainable. The Aveny-T chair is described by the manufacturer, Montana, as “functional, minimalist and expressive,” and it’s easy to see why. The chair embodies a stylish, sophisticated openness through slim features, negative space, and a distinctive visual lightness. Stackable up to ten chairs.
