The Gravity Stool uses magnetism to design
Underpinned by the notion that everything on earth is influenced by gravity – a force that strongly influences form – Jólan van der Wiel takes advantage of this natural occurrence by manipulating the natural force of magnetism.
The designer has made a special magnetism machine with the looks of a tensile machine. By the generated magnetic field, the design rises from a bowl of liquid plastic mixed with iron. The form of the Gravity stool is characterized by pointed and organic shapes that reflect natural forms.
Jólan van der Wiel was the 2012 winner of the Interior Innovation Award with his project Gravity chair.
