Chosen by a jury composed of Werner Aisslinger (Studio Aisslinger), Jurgen Bey (Studio Makkink&Bey), Dr. Annemarie Jaeggi (Bauhaus Archive / Museum of Design, Berlin) and Jerszy Seymour (Jerszy Seymour Design Workshop), this young designer was rewarded not only for the created object, but also for the creation process involved.

The project takes into consideration the laws of physics, departing from the idea that everything is influenced by gravitation. for the series, van der wiel manipulates this natural phenomenon which has a strong shaping effect. this chair adds warmth and authenticity to the home and it’s also a very stylish piece. It’s indeed a unique collection.
