The Cinder Block Bookshelf displays BOND’s openness about sustainability in production processes. Here, the cinder block motif, usually heavy and opaque, represents producers’ lack of transparency about sustainability with production processes and materials. Reimagining the cinder block as transparent decoration piece symbolizes our emphasis on transparency with our processes. Cinder blocks are generally immobile, but ours are modular, in this case forming a bookshelf, signifying how sustainability can be applied to many different concepts.
