At Studio Dirk Van der Kooij techniques are developed to make a better world.
The chair is created with a completely new, high-tech process. An in-house developed robot melts plastic, into a pipe like shape and then carefully writes out the shape of this chair, somewhat like 3d printing.
Each line is hollow to minimize resources, and the source is 100% recycled synthetics.
The minimalistic shape and the extremely low resolution make the looks of the chair closely related to how it’s made.
It is not only recycled or minimizing resources, it’s not only a newly developed 3d printing process, it is not only a catchy design piece…
The true beauty lies in the combination of it all…
We’re back on track a bit with the number of posts.
According to Google Analytics stats are down again:
Visits: 27,306 vs 27,430 (-8.72%)
Pageviews: 52,808 vs 64,078 (-17.59%)
Unfortunately On Feb 25 and Feb 28 we suffered considerable down time. Downtime confuses Google to no end. Furthermore I’ve replaced the Sitemap builder with Yoast’s All in one SEO plugin that comes with a built in Sitemap. Hoping that will work out in the near future.
Dutch designer Dirk van der Kooij is one of those alumni of the Eindhoven Design Academy who come to fame with one of their graduation projects. Dirk experimented with old fridge hulls and a 3D printing machine and created the Endless Chair. Sold already to MoMa, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and vitra Design Museum. I should have featured it here already, but I’ve been waiting till I could make my own photo’s. The first photo is the one currently been sold at Piet Hein Eek’s studio. The second photo is a preproduction model which was on sale at the Venduehuis The Hague back in October 2012. There it was not sold.
