Innovative Design Materials: Jesmonite

Posted on Jul 18, 2016 by

Acrylic-modified gypsum composite Jesmonite has inspired designers around the world for over 30 years with its unique versatility.

London design studio PINCH unveiled a new version of their remarkable Nim table during Maison et Objet earlier this year. Floating on a raised foot with a recessed top, the sculptural coffee table has now been given a show-stopping patinated metal finish. Nim Copper is available as an edition of just 50 numbered pieces. PINCH Design

London based product designer Ariane Prin launched the RUST homeware collection during the 2015 London Design Festival. Each item is made by hand using one off moulds.
