Dutch Design #7 – Gravity Stool by Jólan van der WielJólan van der Wiel manipulates the natural forces of gravity & magnetic fields to shape his design – a very organic, fascinating process that makes me feel humble and in awe with the wonders of physics. And the result shows just that: an extremely powerful yet sinister/disturbing looking stool. Jolan about his designs:
There are many ways for a design process. Each project is different and asks for flexibility in skills, knowledge and behavior. I admire objects that show an experimental discovery, translated to a functional design. A visible concentration in any scale I work on.
On another note (or stool…) Jólan is also the co-founder of Black Pudding – an upcylcing design label based in Amsterdam delivering UNIQUE NOTEBOOKS on request for as little as €7.50 ex p&p. Just send them a theme, word or any other note of inspiration and they’ll make a unique little notebook for you.
