ELEMENTS by Daniel Couttolenc is a family of stools where the measurements are based on the golden ratio and the shapes are an abstraction of the essence of the 4 elements. Earth represents stability (moves down). Wide legs and top, planted on the ground. Water flows, adapts, and forms are fluid. Fire is movement (moves up). Conical tilted legs indicate movement and direction. Air is detachment (lives in the idea “air”).

Set of 4 pieces. Pine wood, coloured finish

About the designer

My work arises from curiosity, from the desire to understand the origin of things. For as long as I can remember I have liked design, I have been seduced by colors, textures and shapes. At the same time, I have had a concern for the spiritual, for mental tranquility and inner peace, this caused me to question my direction as a designer, sometimes seeing design as something superficial (which goes against the spiritual). This is how I found \"Sacred Geometry\" also known as \"Natural Geometry\" that covers topics such as the golden ratio, so I began to study it in a self-taught way, thus understanding the patterns and proportions with which nature creates itself, to later start applying them in my projects, using these proportions as a template. Sacred geometry is present in all nature. It is the basis of the structure of all things from molecules to galaxies. Geometry is vibration just like music is. Certain music such as classical and instrumental is known to have positive effects on people: it stimulates brain power and creativity, reduces stress, and helps express emotions, among other benefits. In the same way, the geometry of the universe has similar effects on people, the difference is the sense by which it is perceived, geometry is perceived visually and music aurally. Neither of the two can be understood solely by our rational brain, must be experienced in order to process it. In this way I find a way to unite the material with the spiritual, the visible with the invisible, thus emerging Daniel Couttolenc Studio creating \"spaces of harmony\" that speak beyond what can be seen. Just as music is created to be experienced, the spaces and/or pieces I create are to be experienced.
