Outdoor Furniture with a Dose of Glamor

Christine Chang Hanway April 19, 2012

From Le Corbusier to Donald Judd, architects and artists have long been attracted to the sculptural qualities of cast concrete. With her recently launched outdoor furniture line CAST 001, British architect Sally Mackereth adds warmth and texture with a metallic sheen.

Collaborating with molding and casting specialists Stevensons of Norwich, Mackereth of London-based architecture practice Wells Mackereth adds glamor to outdoor furniture with the sort of metallic finishes and hues more typically associated with the world of fashion or interior design. "Just as interior furniture complements the rooms it inhabits, CAST 001 makes a sublime contribution to the landscape in which it is placed,” says Mackereth. The pieces are made to order and available in several finishes, including Old Gold, Pewter, Bronze, and Chainmail; for more information, go to CAST 001.
