PUT ON A PEDESTAL

India Today - - HOMES -

Dutch de­signer Robert Bron­wasser knows how to turn around the most or­di­nary look­ing gadget into an ex­tra­or­di­nary one. Re­think­ing and rein­ter­pret­ing de­sign is his forte as is ev­i­dent from the look given to the tele­vi­sion by him for Am­s­ter­dam- based de­sign stu­dio Smool. Still a pro­to­type, the gizmo is cov­ered in pow­der blue fab­ric and stands on yel­low- coloured legs. The sleek de­vice clearly goes be­yond its tech­ni­cal func­tions to fit into the dé­cor scheme. The colour­ful blocks which look more like ele­ments from a jig­saw puz­zle are noth­ing but fur­ni­ture pieces. Made by Swiss de­sign com­pany Schindler Salmerón, the 3T Hocker - Grom­met Joint stools are formed from three iden­ti­cal, thin sheets of pow­der coated alu­minium, which sta­bilise one an­other as they fold three­d­i­men­sion­ally. Fit for out­door and wet ar­eas alike, the light­weight items are as­sem­bled with the help of a novel grom­met joint de­vel­oped by the firm.
