Israeli designer Maor Aharon says his work examines the boundaries between craft and industry, functional and decorative, and high- versus low-tech. This thought process is on view in his colorful “Matter of Motion” stools, which were designed through experiments in centrifugal forces and how they can be displayed through material and shape.
Just like a washing machine, Aharon’s manufacturing method uses centrifugal forces, which move in a circular path outwardly. The seats are made by revolving a colorful mixture of soft and hard materials like polymer resins, mixed wood and metal chips, as well as pigments, carefully poured into a reusable mold.
All stools have the same dimensions but are “one off” pieces, as patterns cannot be repeated.
Aharon seems himself as a “one-man production line” that develops original tools and machinery with the capacity to manufacture small and medium product series.
