Volume B by Marcio Kogan

Volume B, designed by Marcio Kogan, is the retail furniture store for Vitra located in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Marcio Kogan used the materials in their extreme condition, such as visible concrete executed without any concern about precision or finishing, or the skin of the back volume where they used various layers of a steel frame which is usually used on the inside of the concrete slabs and were found at the site.

Likewise, the interior walls did not get any special finishing and still have the original chalk markings left by the workers during the construction, almost an archeological discovery.

The external floor is made of pebbles which are also used to mix concrete. Almost an x-ray of the materials.

  1. Very dramatic. I like the effect of the rough concrete and the rough iron. It’s a nice contrast with the furniture.
