The Strata seating is inspired by the stratum and the stratigraphy drawings found in and around the quarry at the Brick Works. With a form inspired by drilled core samples, multiple discarded materials are repurposed to create the different layers of the seat.
Used concrete aggregate is mixed with a small percentage of fresh cement to create a stable base. The top surface is created from ground used corks from the Niagara wine region which creates a soft, warm seating platform. The middle two layers are made of made from sawdust and ground tires. The sawdust is from our wood shop that would otherwise have been discarded.
