Stool made in 296 minutes, Red
This brightly colored clay stool was designed in a bid to inject some fun into daily and forgotten objects. Made in Diego Dough, a special type of air-drying clay that remains pliable once dry, the stool is priced according to designer Diego Faivre’s “Minute Manufacturing” system, whereby every minute of production time costs €2. That means the product’s final price is a direct reflection of the amount of time it took to make it – in this case, 296 minutes.
This listing is for Red. Also available in Blue.
Currently based in the Netherlands, Faivre’s design practice aims to intertwine a dialogue between seriousness, absurdity and poetry. By creating physical reactions, to twist the way we perceive design, he uses an instinctive and colorful approach to reflect on the modern loss of personal identity, and the current obsession with time and money as his primary source of inspiration. Diego Faivre is a french designer who graduated from Man and Leisure at the Design Academy, Eindhoven in 2018.
