The Dream Sideboard

The Dream Sideboard is a tribute to an era of the architectural history that soon will need a caring hand. To make it possible for cities in post war Europe to host the expanding population, millions of concrete dwellings were constructed after efficient industrial principles of the 1950’s and 60’s. Many of these large building blocks will reach their date of expiry during this decade. Some will be demolished and others rejuvenated in new and contemporary ways. Throughout the 80’s this often happened by adding pastel colors and historic portals around the entrances due to post modernism that denied the industrial origin of the buildings. This piece of furniture is an experiment in working with the aesthetics of this type of architecture rather than against it

All Concrete Sideboards are produced in the former East Germany using only local materials.
