Material Method

Material Narrative
Soft concrete it’s a material that combines the softness of the gelatine with the stiffness of concrete. Through its unique sensory texture, this material challenges your preconceptions about concrete.
Material Classification
All the ingredients present in the material are degradable or do not represent any threat for the environment. It cannot be recycled, since gelatine will rot, but it can go back to nature.
