Normen is a stool/chair hybrid object, inspired by our urban landscape; a built environment that is given its shape by repetitive forms and structures. These standardised structures, such as scaffolding or bicycle stands, are shaped by a graphic repetition. The aim of Normen is to explore a possible physical translation of these reoccurring urban patterns.
Three simple forms come together to give the overall gestalt of Normen. The frame, which acts as both the legs and the seat, are put together out of two identical metal profiles; further stabilisation is provided by the backrest profile – which extends under and through the seat.
