While researching for ts, I run into this amazing project. I don’t know how many of you know about it, but I think the way it is partly self-formed, partly controlled by the designer is really cool…

The Gravity Stool thanks its unique shape to the cooperation between magnetic fields and the power of gravity.

Departing from the idea that everything is influenced by gravitation, a force that has a strongly shaping effect, Jólan intended to manipulate this natural phenomenon by exploiting its own power: magnetism. The positioning of the magnetic fields in the machine, opposing each other, has largely determined the final shape of the Gravity Stool.

It is the combination of the magnet machine with the plastic material, developed especially for this purpose, that enabled Jólan to start a small but efficient chain of production. The forms and products are characterized by the freakish and organic shapes that are so typical of nature itself.

You can see more on how it is made on the artists website here

Hope everyone is having a good time!

Cool! But a small correction should be made to the description (not yours Christina, the long one). Magnetism and gravity are not the same thing, but essentially different and two of the four fundamental interactions of nature.

Best regards, Magnetism nerd
