Polyrope
2023

Inspired by Grymsdyke Farm's outdoor sculptures by Guan Lee and his students, the project uses polypropylene ropes as a starting point. They are wrapped around wooden poles, melted, and solidified, forming strong connections and a resilient structure. The same ropes were woven into a Danish-style seat on the stool, creating a subtle contrast in colour between the original and the molten state of the cord.
The colour palette - typically for climbing and sailing ropes - includes neutral and earthy tones as well as fluorescent brights.

Also available as a bench.

Dimensions W:42 x L:37 x H:45cm

Materials Tulip wood, polypropylene climbing rope

Tino
Seubert

is a product design studio in London (UK).

When he first made his now signature wicker and aluminium stools and benches in 2018 for a show at the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield, German-born (1986, Forchheim) Tino Seubert found that they opened up a whole new design philosophy for him. They became the starting point for his future projects, which all revel in the juxtaposition of the organic and the industrial and enjoy the exploration of unconventional contexts. For Seubert, the organic is often a welcoming entry point into his work, with people from different countries drawn in by familiar traditional craft elements, only to be tantalised by the clash with sleek, precise industrial design. As a designer, he thrives off an energetic participation in the processes that go into making his pieces: whether it’s wood and stonework or metal machining, electronics or anodising aluminium by hand, Seubert is always obsessively engaged with the detail of his creations.
