Swiss industrial designer Tobias Brunner designed this object, which is "5kg milled from a single block of granite without a predetermined function."
After some Instagram followers weighed in with potential uses, Brunner took them to heart:
It was apparently for sale at the VitraHaus Shop, but at press time I couldn't find a listing. I'm dying to know how much it went for, and how many units they moved.
No.To have "designed" was to have a purpose in mind and created an object to fulfil it.He did an Art.
For a species that seemingly needs everything I'm astonished to find something we don't.
I like it, snazzy. 'Endless uses, just takes some imagination.
Listed for 300CHF (about 320 USD)
I love this. It really takes "the street finds its own use for things" idea to the next level. I wonder what other shapes you could do it with.
I’m a lapsed industrial designer. I was born in NYC and figured I’d die there, but a few years ago I abandoned New York to live on a farm in the countryside with my wife. We have six dogs.
