The first of RADICAL series represents concrete sculptures inspired by objects which shaped generations and left an undeniable impact. The design and ideas they represent are a concrete-solid part of our history, it can now be said literally. All of the objects were mass produced and offered more than just a plain fulfillment of basic needs. They represented statuses, mindsets and desires of their owners, deeply attached to their geographic location and social status.
