Blog/Jesmonite: LDF Material Of The Year

ariane prin jesmonite rust shallow bowl collection

No two items of the RUST collection are the same; metal dust oxidisation gives each product a unique texture, colour and intensity.


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. A lightweight alternative to concrete 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! Flick through the archives as we celebrate the material inspiring designers around the world for over 30 years.
