'Space is the breath of art' said Frank Lloyd Wright

Many of the best and most influential buildings of the last century are constructed with concrete, from Le Corbusier's quintessentially modernist Villa Savoye, to Frank Lloyd Wright's spellbinding Falling water, and from Oscar Niemeyer's nation defining Brasilia, to Tadao Ando's exhilarating Church of the Light.

For this reason Material Immaterial studio have conceived these miniature concrete pieces called “SPACES” to advocate and celebrate concrete's beauty efficacy and its incalculable contribution to creating and defining spaces in the modern life.

Each piece is an individually complete space defined by Volumes and voids that give the human imagination a glimpse into what could be lying inside. The nine pieces from this first set can be put together around the central 'Kund’ to create a community space.

The 'SPACES' can adorn your desktop for years to come, and are bound to evoke your imagination every time you look at them, and tell a new story each time.
