Playing elements by Jolan van der Wiel
Published on January 24, 2012
The Method Case always looks for methodologies or design processes that designers and architects use to create their concepts, products, services, etc. Today we come up with a brilliant idea from dutch designer Jólan van der Wiel. Water bottles collected from the streets are used as molds for concrete playing elements. The smooth texture of the bottles gives the casted concrete a huggable surface. The simplicity of the material and production makes the elements easy to reproduce locally. Once more it is shown that usually designing is not about the resources rather its creativity.
