STRATA is an innovative collection of MeldStone™ benches and tables. Created in collaboration with industrial designer Jess Sorel, it is specifically designed to employ the company's proprietary MeldStone™ Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) technology. The collection includes a straight bench with and without back, a backless angled bench and an asymmetric six-sided table, all of which can be combined in multiple ways to create out-of-the-ordinary social settings. landscapeforms.com

Part of the collection titled "Hamel + Farrell for Jean de Merry", the Module Side Tables were inspired by sharing gourmet chocolates. Each elements is whole and equally interesting whether employed in single or triplicate, and they fit together in jig-saw format as a single form. Shown in ebony grain wood finish with antiqued bronze, each element is approximately 34 x 30 x 18.25(h). The table was designed by Dylan Farrell and commissioned by Thomas Hamel for production by Jean de Merry. jeandemerry.com
