Nook by Patrick Frey for Vial
In a previous life Patrick Frey created one of our favourite Moormann products: Kant.
And we think he may have done it again with Nook his new stool for vial.
Manufactured in a single piece from VarioLine – an injection moulded plastic – the folded form is held together by an aluminium catch in the base.
The tension generated in the VarioLine give Nook its stability and durability.
In addition, thanks to the nature of the VarioLine Nook is weather and UV resistant and so can be used just as well indoors as out. And is a lot heavier than you might imagine meaning there is no real danger of it blowing over in the slightest breeze.
We particularly like the fact that Nook looks like its about to break; the white edges giving the impression of over tension.
It isn’t, and it wont.
It just looks like it.
And it’s made in Dresden. Which makes it highest quality modern East German design technology.
