Daphne Zuilhof’s ‘Spin’, which means ‘spider’ in Dutch, is a foldable stool that unfolds like a spider’s legs, stretching outward and pivoting forwards and back.
Spider was created for a group exhibition of Industrial Design master students from Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, working around the theme of negative space. “Spin flexibly transforms from a simple compact shape into an open and complex one, and back again.” says Zuilhof. “The transformation emphasizes the frictional relationship between the space that is created and the space that is occupied.”
“In its unfolding movement Spin’s geometrical lines frame the created negative space, embracing the emptiness. The negative space is built upon and becomes Spin’s main element.”
The Negative Space group exhibition will be on display in New York at ICFF in May 2013.
