Jolan Van Der Wiel’s Psychedelic Tray Tables Are Created Using Centrifugal Forces

Dutch designer Jolan Van Der Wiel  created a public workshop where visitors could make their own colorful trays using natural forces. The designer, famous for creating strange, spiky objects  with the help of gravity and magnetic fields, is now harnessing the power of centrifugal forces  and a recycled tool he developed himself.
Van Der Wiel  mixes plastic with sand, concrete and other elements to give his trays a rigid, textured quality. To make his psychedelic designs, he developed a new, easy to operate machine powered by an old bike crank  that spans a table top and creates unique centrifugal designs once in motion.
