Multifacet Collection by Matali Crasset

French designer Matali Crasset's collection of display units highlight the design possibilities of combining concrete and metal.

Concrete, pewter and brass come together in a new collection of furniture and objects designed by Matali Crasset.

French designer Crasset was invited by Light Concrete Design Art  (LCDA) to design the Multifacet collection comprising a series of four display objects.

The units are all made using concrete shaped with the same mould but altered in various ways to feature a different metal on the inside. The champagne bucket and candleholder feature mirror-polished solid pewter, while the units for ornaments and flowers make use of brushed brass.

In the collection, a masterful mix of contrasting materials meets a need for durable beauty, says Crasset. 

The Multifacet collection will be unveiled at Maison & Objet from 23 to 27 January 2015.
