Jólan van der Wiel  unveiled an incredible set of stools shaped using magnetic fields  and the force of gravity at the Dutch ‘Transnatural ‘ exhibition during the Milan furniture Fair . The stools were made by placing a mix of iron and plastic in-between strong magnets that pull the material into unique and organic shapes. With their energy-efficient production method and wonderfully peculiar shape, these ‘Gravity Stools’ should be at the top of any Salone stalker’s must-see list.
An innovative project created by playing with the forces of gravity and magnetic energy, these unconventional seats focus in on production techniques, instead of the final product.
Take a minute to watch the video above, and we’re sure you will find yourself falling for this design.
