ROTAN CHAIR

The conceptual Rattan Chair is the result of a form study in which Vroonland discovered new uses for the traditional technique of (reed) breading.

Through binding rattan in an artistic form with tie-ribs the chair is able to project a raw and energetic appearance, playing with the boundaries of technology. The Zuiderzee Museum included this design in their collection alongside more traditional techniques.

 

ROTAN CHAIR

De Rotan Chair is het resultaat van een vormstudie waarin Vroonland zocht naar nieuwe toepassingen voor de traditionele rietvlechttechniek.

Door pitriet te bundelen en samen te binden met een, jawel, tie-rib, creëerden ze een rauwe, energieke stoel, die op een brutale manier speelt met de grenzen van de techniek. De Rotan Chair is opgenomen in de collectie van het Zuiderzeemuseum, waar hij naast traditionele riet gevlochten objecten wordt gepresenteerd.

VROONLAND FURNITURE COLLECTION

The collection Vroonland is reminiscent of authentic design treasures – it reflects both what they used to be and what they still are today. The innovative designs are inspired by classic compositions from design history and are created using the materials, techniques and forms that we all know. From the archetypal saddle to the antique clothespin, Vroonland uses the best features of time-honoured design and finds new ways to apply them.

The strength of the products from Vroonland lies in the encounter between materials. Between framework and lampshade, between table and leg, the materials are uncompromised and the line of work can be clearly seen. Instead of hiding all the technical detailing, the designer focuses on the beauty of structure. The result is as sober as it is poetic and makes the furniture even more engaging.
