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.
Each stool is 40cm (16") in diameter and 45cm (17") tall.
Each stool weighs roughly 35kg (the concrete section is hollow).
