The RADICAL#1 series represents six concrete sculptures inspired by iconic shapes of ideas that were materialized into objects and shaped us, now captured in the most used material made by us – concrete. Their impact on the past changed our future, making them a concrete-solid part of our history. The objects were mass-produced and offered more than just a fulfilment of needs. They represented their owners’ statuses, mindsets, and desires, deeply attached to their geographic location.
