To Become One by Erwin Zwiers



Dutch design graduate Erwin Zwiers has designed a set of seats and a table inspired by the imprints that people leave behind in the sand on a beach.


Named To Become One, the table and seats are part of his Leave Your Shape Behind collection.


The furniture comprises artificial-leather sacks, filled with sand and supported by ash frames.


Below is some text from Erwin:


The inspiration for the “Leave your shape behind collection” comes from the beach. The sand stimulates young and old people. Aware or unaware the sand has an attraction to touch and form it and to play with it.


The “to become one, table and seats” has two parts, the sack, which is formless,  and the construction of the frame. By reinforcing each other the two parts become one. The sacks defy to form and play, just like the sand on the beach.

    The knotted protruding necks on the sacks really push this into superugly territory.

    Uggers indeed. It feels as though there are a multitude of ways in which this concept could perhaps have been executed in an attractive fashion, but these have unfortunately been missed.
