LDF Material Of The Year: Jesmonite

Posted on Sep 11, 2017 by

This September, London Design Fair will present Jesmonite as its inaugural Material of the Year. A new initiative intended to explore and celebrate the materials having the biggest impact on the design world.

Praised for its near limitless versatility, Jesmonite has been incorporated into many of the most unassuming contemporary designs from the likes of Ariane Prin to PINCH. Ahead of the curve, you might remember we featured Jesmonite in Warehouse Home Issue Four! Read on as we flick through the archives celebrating the material inspiring designers around the world for over 30 years.

“Jesmonite was invented in 1984 as a lightweight alternative to concrete and a safe substitute for fibreglass. Problem solving and innovation are at the core of everything we do – we strive to be at the leading edge of material technology.” Simon Pearson, Managing Director, Jesmonite

No two items of the RUST collection are the same; each are made by hand whilst the metal dust oxidisation gives each product a unique texture, colour and intensity. Read the full story on Jesmonite designs in issue four of Warehouse Home interior design magazine
