Skipjack Stool ‘Headstand’ By QED Design

Sunday, 21 December 2014

Chair by QED Design: 'Headstand'Michael Neubauer and Alexander J. Rybol from qed Design created this cool dynamic skipjack stool.

The stool headstand is based upon the principal of a skipjack and offers dynamic seating. Headstand turns the common ludo-pawn upside down in a surprising manner due to a unusual balance point.

Michael Neubauer mapped out the design philosophy 'qed' in 2006, which is the guideline for the creative process and the output. This was the basis for the foundation of the q.e.d. Design GmbH in 2008. Since then qed Design established itself in the scene with own products and projects.

The quite interesting philosophy of qed is hidden in the firm's name which is a shortcut for:

Quite Easily Done
Simple things are usually easier to explain and understand than complicated ones. Simplicity is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

Question Every Detail
Scratching the surface only leads to slight changes. Basic changes are made by taking a closer look under the surface.

Quod Erat Demonstrandum
The translation of the Latin phrase means, "that which was to be demonstrated". To make things possible you always have to try the impossible.
