Joris de Groot is a designer searching for the tension between craftsmanship and industry in his work.
Interested in collaborating within the industry, De Groot creates his own workplace within the factory grounds. Once familiar with the process of the existing techniques, De Groot experiments with the available machinery and materials for new innovative uses.
For the project WELD STOOL, De Groot has collaborated with Lever Kunststoftechniek and Hubbers BV.: an industrial plastic mounting company and a company which specialized in the producing of custom fit interiors.
By researching these two companies and by joining the forces of both parties, the series WELD STOOL originated. Within this collaboration the welding technique and plastic material of Lever Kunststoftechniek has been used.
The sophisticated custom fit of the wood and the various cutouts of the pattern pieces are executed by Hubbers BV.
