Leg work: Artist shows how to grow a stool

28.06.2010 Ritual : Form Follows Ritual : Production Process

London – An artist has questioned the mass production of furniture by asking whether designers can create an emotional attachment by slowing down the production process.

I-Wen Lee has designed ‘The Growing Stool’ and through pictures and a video, she demonstrates the growing process. Lee pours fluid such as clear resin or glass fibre into funnels and this drips onto a shelf. Like the formation of stalactites, the process gradually creates the legs of the stool.

LS:N Global has explored in detail the importance of the emotional attachment to design, for more on this read our Emotional Home design direction.
