The Fat Agg bench is a concrete bench formed entirely from construction and demolition waste sourced from Brisbane building sites.
Five Mile Radius selects discarded building materials, crushing and combining these materials to form a 'fat aggregate'. This Fat Agg is set in surplus waste cement sourced wet from commercial builders. Each bench is mounted on recycled stainless steel legs and then sanded, polished and sealed.
Every Fat Agg bench is handcrafted at the Five Mile Radius headquarters in Red Hill. Due to the variation in waste materials used no two benches are alike. The Fat Agg bench is suitable for indoor and outdoor use as a table or seat.
The bench was developed as part of 'Waste Piles' - an installation for the Botanica Festival 2019. You can read more about the process here
