INNOVATIVE USE OF CONCRETE

Solid yet refined, Kahn collection challenges
the way concrete is used in modern furniture.
Concrete is moulded into curvative structures that compliment and support the human body.

  

A FIRM FOUNDATION INSPIRED BY BRIDGE STRUCTURE

Kahn collection is inspired by bridge design
and monolithic Soviet structures and monuments.
This range features hand polished concrete with
steel reinforcements and solid oak throughout.

PROCESS DEVELOPMENT

A sneak-peek into development process at
District Eight. Before reaching the final form,
we tested out several prototypes to ensure each
meets both aesthetic value and
technical requirement.


“I am particularly fond of concrete, symbol of
the construction progress of a whole century,
submissive and strong as an elephant,
monumental like stone, humble like brick.”

- Carlos Raúl Villanueva
