SLABSbyDesign is a Sydney based studio, founded by Gina Chapman, that designs and produces polished concrete furniture for commercial and residential projects. Specialising in pieces that combine concrete with steel or reclaimed timber, we favour a clean and simple aesthetic and work primarily with a grey-white colour and tonal range.
As a design graduate from The International School of Colour and Design, it goes without saying that creating the right environment for my own living space is something I took seriously. As it would happen, this is how SLABSbyDesign was born.
While furnishing our family home, there was one absolute must-have for me: the incomparable statement of a contemporary concrete dining table. I had found myself hooked on concrete, unable to ignore everything it had to offer - boldness and raw charm coupled with durability and functionality. The latter a must for anyone with young kids!
I wanted the dining table to be the centrepiece of our living area and so began the search for an affordable solution that met all of my design criteria. I couldn’t find what I was looking for at an affordable price, so I created my own. It’s from here that I decided to create a business to see if I could help others in the market who share my love of this amazing material.
Since launching, the business has evolved to offer our own great range of products as well as tailor making pieces for residential and commercial clients. We absolutely love what we do and it’s always a pleasure to discover and share ideas with other concrete lovers.
