"Essentially, for his stools, van der Wiel mixes a large amount of iron filings – around 6kg – with some liquid plastic, then uses magnets to draw up the legs. What’s left in the bowl forms the seat. The whole mixture sets within about five minutues and then you have a stool, which can cope with up to 200kg of weight and is surprisingly tactile too, with a vinyl-meets-rubber feel allied with its own unexpected weight."

Sustainable to evolvable

If it were possible to make a time-lapse film of the earth we would see that it was constantly moving. Yet when we build, we design as if the world were static.

This is because we imagine the world through machines. We problem-solve using the machine as our metaphor for understanding our environment and its resources. This approach has served us so well that we now almost exclusively use machines to solve all our problems. The monoculture of machine-inspired innovation means that we have effectively been building our cities for machines, not humans. People are not machines – we are living systems that radiate into and receive from our environment. We respond to on-going changes in our surroundings, sometimes in surprising ways. Because of the environmentally belligerent principles that underpin machine thinking, and the scale of development that has been possible through industrial practices, the recent global explosion in human development has resulted in extensive ecological damage.
