“As space begins to be captured, enclosed, molded, and organized by the elements of mass and volume, architecture comes into being.”

With influential concrete buildings like Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water, and Tadao Ando’s Church of the Light in mind, Mumbai-based Material Immaterial studio has created SPACES, a set of miniature concrete pieces. “Each piece is an individually complete space defined by volumes and voids,” offering the basis for users to imagine what could be lying inside.

With Spaces, Material Immaterial studio aims to "advocate and celebrate concrete's beauty, efficacy and its incalculable contribution to creating and defining spaces in the modern life."

The SPACES collection contains nine pieces, which can be combined to form a central “Kund” with a community space.
