Inspired by stratum and the stratigraphy drawings, STRATA recreates the look of quarry core samples with 95% re-purposed materials.
The Strata stools are inspired by the stratum and the stratigraphy drawings found in and around the quarry at the Evergreen Brickworks. With a form inspired by drilled core samples, multiple discarded materials are re-purposed 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.
