for a temporary cafe at the Studio Spaces Meneer de Wit in Amsterdam friends asked me to contribute to their furniture. The cafe showed photography, graphic design, fashion, art and furniture, had movie- and party-nights as well as brunch with dj’s.
I designed a stool consisting of three parts that would use the sheet of wood it’s cut from with as little waist as possible. The shape of the tip-toeing feet result as the cut out of the round seat.
There were 4 sizes varying the proportions between more of a table to more of a stool.
For making it, I drew the cutting line and send it to a company in the south of the netherlands that orderd the wood and cut it with a water-cutter. They then send of the pieces to me by mail. It was the first cooperation I did with a company I never met in person. Some polyurethane-foam pillows from Janis Poenisch made a good addition to the bare furniture.
