Conscious use of materials,Doreen Westphal

Doreen Westphal in her studio.
All products designed by Doreen Westphal.
Lamp: Sunny Spells and Scattered Showers
Made from Ultra High Performance Concrete (Quantz)
I immediately fell in love with this curtain !
It's wonderfull made of concrete.
A few weeks ago I did ask her that question when I visited her studio while she was working on something new. We are neighbours so it isn't that far travelling :)
But I was curious,why concrete ?
Well,her answer was quite simple...
It takes less energy to produce than porcelain and therefore better for the environment
 Very surprised of the answer and so her conscious use of materials, I had to let you know....
( She also make/mixes the concrete herself )
How she makes it you can read here

Outside this what I show here,she has designed many more products.
