The special Zwarthout artwork from the 93-year-old French artist Francois Calvat has been selected for the MaterialDistrict Rotterdam 2019 exposition (12-14 March)! Dutch designers and one of the six sector ambassadors Niels van Eijk and Miriam van der Lubbe (design studio Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe) chose the artwork for the sector Interiors.

Calvat only works with a few materials: steel sheet, zinc and charred wood. He has been using the charred wood for 40 years already, long before the introduction of Shou Sugi Ban in Europe by Zwarthout.
