Surrounded stools by Els Woldhek

November 22nd, 2012 by retail design blog

Surrounded is inspired by the craft, vibrant colours and patterns of garland making and the amazing processes in which the yarns and fibers are dyed around it in India. The bright coulourful garlands are handmade with a simple technique which is based on rope making. The twisting of the treads on two occasions keeps the threads twined and in their place. As all the yarn processes leading to the final product take place within one specific neighborhood of Ahmedabad, India, you find yourself surrounded by the materials, colours and technique that make up the end product.

It is this feeling that the Surrounded stool tries to capture. Twisting the colours together to create bright soft ropes which are wound around a circular base. Creating a intricate pattern of colour and a soft cushion for the stool. With special thanks to Yoav Reches.
