Gesso Side Table (low) – Ochre
The Gesso Side Table is handmade and unique, made of a compostable stone material developed by Jonas Edvard.
The Gesso material was invented and developed by Jonas Edvard. It is composed of limestone, bio-glue and natural pigment. Gesso is the world’s first compostable stone material. The limestone comes from the fossilized remains of a 65-million-year-old coral reef located in Faxe, Denmark. Today, coral and bryozoan limestone is quarried at Faxe, used mainly for cement and fertilizer. Limestone is a highly versatile material that is used to perform a wide range of functions, from toothpaste to smoke scrubbers. Calcium, which is the main component of limestone, is a key building block in human and animal bones, and by creating furniture in this material Jonas Edvard aims to illustrate how consumers can play an active role in bringing about a sustainable lifestyle.
The Gesso Side Table is part of Jonas Edvard’s ongoing Gesso project. All products are handmade and unique. Made in Copenhagen, Denmark
