THE CURIO – Astrid Tolnov

Astrid Tolnov (1985) graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts of Design with a MA in (Furniture) Design, 2016. Tolnov works with uncommon, atypical materials and compositions, forcing herself into unpredictable processes and design solutions. She works with form and materials in experimental ways, but always with a clear focus on functionalism. For From Fiber to Form she has developed a new material of mixed fibers and water, which is shaped in a self-developed molding tool. The stool visually embodies traces of the classic stool, but gains a one-off expression with its unique textile appearance.
