Nook stool by Patrick Frey for VIAL

September 2nd, 2011 by retail design blog

With the NOOK stool VarioLine®, a tried and tested material known from the automotive and marine industries, has been used in furniture design for the first time. The NOOK bench is also manufactured using VarioLine®. The innovative sheet plastic material is produced using a high-tech injection moulding process to create a closed-cell foam core enclosed between two highly compressed, non-porous surface layers. VarioLine® is also weatherproof and UV-resistant and can be recycled easily. Just like the NOOK stool, the NOOK bench is manufactured from one single piece of material: a folding pattern is CNC machined on the inner surface of a VarioLine® sheet; the bench is then folded into its distinct shape and the construction is fixed at the bottom of each side of the bench with aluminium brackets.
