Dutch graduate designer Jólan van der Wiel showcased an incredible set of stools shaped using magnetic fields and the force of gravity at the "Transnatural" exhibition during the Milan furniture Fair. The stools were made by placing a combination of iron and plastic between strong magnets that pull the material into unique and organic shapes.
"The Gravity Stools" take their unique shape thanks to the cooperation between magnetic fields and the power of gravity. Inspired by the idea that everything is influenced by gravitation, a force that has a strong shaping effect, he intended to manipulate this natural phenomenon by exploiting its own power of magnetism. The positioning of the magnetic fields in the machine, opposing eachother, has largely determined the final shape of the Gravity Stool.
