The Belgian designer and sculptor Xavier Lust signs Fossil for MDF Italia, an eclectic furnishing accessory that can be used as a low table. A highly versatile design for a family of elements, revisited with more rounded, fluid lines. Built in lightweight concrete, it is suitable for use both indoors and outside, sporting a delicate, neutral finish echoing the nuances of an organic, natural universe.
Cement UHPFRC (ultra-high performance fibre-reinforced cement) with cutting-edge technical/structural properties. A fundamental characteristic of the components is mass colouration. The finish and colour of the table bases is the result of a skilled mixture of sand and natural elements.
Together with the slow maturation and drying given to each piece, this allows countless subtle shades to be obtained. The combination of this particular material and the maturation process, which is affected by weather changes, may result in visual irregularities in the design and in the colour.
The subtle shades and the lack of uniformity in surface and colour are to be considered unique properties enhancing the value of the piece.
