‘the energy stool’ by marcel pasternak
product overview

 

 

keeping in mind that we are in constant cyclic exchange of energy – whether it be seen in the regeneration
of batteries or resting the human body, the stool by designer marcel pasternak uses wax and casted in bronze
to pay tribute to the eco-cycle of the framework found in the law of conservation of energy. in a transformation
of this stored energy – the production process is modeled around joseph beuys’ fascination with bees,
offering users a resting place to restore their energy, giving back to the insect.
