Pressed

In order to manufacture final products, machines are becoming less and less dependent on humans. As a result, the typical human touch is disappearing from almost all products we use and see in our day-to-day life. The items created with the “pressing-machine” emphasize the meaning of human actions in creating
objects. With the project Pressed method, humans and machines are working together in harmony; they need each other in order to create objects

Potato Family

The Potato Family design is inspired by the chestnut and potato figures we all made during our childhood. The construction of these figures is one of the first moments in which a child experiences a material creative process. This playful way of creating something has inspired Floris Wubben for this series of shelving units.
These shelving units were made in collaboration with artist Bauke Fokkema.

Stripped

With the Stripped design a piece of nature is transformed into a standing lamp, by a minimum number of modifications.
Stripped is made out of one branch only, which is split into three parts beneath. As a result, the legs of a standing lamp are made. The bark is almost entirely pealed from the branch and with a rotating movement formed into a lamp-shade.
Each part of the tree branch obtains a new function, without losing its natural and exceptional appearance.

Tangible Light

Light is untouchable; it has no mass. The Tangible Light design uses a round CFL in a constructive way and, consequently, the observer views that light can have a support purpose as well. In addition, through this design one perceive light as a nearly tangible element.

With the use of a wooden lath, the round CFL is woven together with the Polypropene. As a result, a constructive framework arises.

Tree Fungus

The design Tree Fungus is a furniture where two halves of a pollard willow have been connected by a parasite-like structure. By means of this combination a roomdivider arises.

This project had been put in practice jointly with the artist Bauke Fokkema.

Eyrie Chair by Floris Wubben

The nest of a bird is an inventive piece of natural architecture. As a designer, who works a lot with natural material, I was always fascinated by these natural structures. The Eyrie Chair is an ode to these natural constructions.
During my search for branches I was specifically interested in the forms. The specific forms of these wooden branches inspired as well in making this design.

No. 3 bench

This bench is made of polypropylene, wood and lacquered metal. The wavy polypropylene is attached to the wooden branch with metal rods. As a consequence, the shape of the polypropylene is given by the shape of the branch. The polypropylene forms a fascinating combination along with the natural wood. Although completely different materials, they both need each other to conquer the whole design.

Vienetta Chair

This chair is a combination of white polypropene with steel chromed pipe. Through the use of these two materials an interesting combined action of contrast and construction arises; application of these totally different materials is essential for the functioning of a chair: construction and comfortable seat. The construction of the chair can be taken apart; every part of the chair can be replaced. As the construction can be taken apart, it is easy to vary the colour of the polypropene.

Designer: Floris (Netherlands)
Manufacturer: Studio Floris Wubben (Netherlands)
Material: polypropene with steel chromed pipe
Colours: polypropene is in 25 colours!
Dimension: 500x500mmx900mm
