Dezeen Platform:
Jólan van der Wiel


Dezeen Platform: graduate designer Jólan van der Wiel creates a series of stools shaped by magnets live at Dezeen Platform at Dezeen Space today.

Each stool takes about 20 minutes to produce, using van der Wiel's machine that shapes the material according to the postion of magnets and the force of gravity.


Each one can be unique, dependending on where he places the magnets.

Van der Wiel graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam this summer.

    Fantastic, just when you think its all been done…

  • question

    Which material is it ?

  • xtiaan

    very cool, is it resin + iron filings or something?

  • The material consist out of Iron filings mixed with different components plastic. The production proces is quit healthy because you don't need any electric power and nature creates the shape. Jólan

    Ah plastics, that explains a lot.

    Which industrial magnets (like they use for dead cars) you can make tables :)
