DEMATERIALIZE   What is a structure characterized by? When does it appear aesthetic, when repellent? The research project focuses on dissociation through dematerialization of familiar forms and structures. The stool´s extraordinary appearance is reinforced by contrasting two opposing manufacturing techniques: As the seating surface is produced in a digital-subtractive process the legs are cast in a silicone mould from a specific PU-resin mixture - digital subtraction vs. organic addition.

  ENERGY STOOL  No matter what we do, we constantly move energies. Just like a battery, the human body renews it’s energy storage at rest to transform it into action during everyday life. German artist Joseph Beuys (*1921; †1986) created an eco-cycle within the law of conservation of energy which attributes an energy storing function to wax. Inspired by Joseph Beuys’ eco-cycle, we replaced modeling wax with real beeswax to increase the amount of energy within the lost wax casting process. The bronze seater of the casted stool glints in a golden honeycomb structure and pays tribute to the work of busy bees, offering users a resting place to restore their energy, giving it back to the insects.   Featured on  designboom .
