It all started in 2017, when I developed a technique that enabled me to convert a small amount of veneer into hollow, conical objects. A technique that requires little material and produces even less waste. By laser cutting or water jetting sheet material into concentric layers and assembling them by hand, I obtain organically shaped objects which are handmade in my studio. They are produced in small scale and mostly on demand. All the objects are cataloged within the “Stratum Series” collection.

Stratum Basim is the third piece in this “Stratum Series”. For this piece, we’ve put the focus on the costly and irreversible waste of a product that has taken millions of years to complete. To let people think twice about marble and other precious materials, “Stratum Basim” appears in the form of a totem as statement. From a 2cm flat plate of marble of 60 by 80cm, we created a solid looking object of 40cm high by 30cm wide.

Stratum Basim is made exclusively on request. Each time, we use a leftover piece of marble, which is more difficult to use for the company and would lead to waste.

Especially for Adorno you’re able to order a Travertin edition. Each piece is numbered as a piece unique. All pieces are made to order and can’t be returned after payment.

About the designer

Daan De Wit

Daan De Wit, born in 1995, is a Belgian interior and furniture designer. In 2018 he graduated in postgraduate furniture design after completing his bachelor\'s degree in interior design in Brussels. Before opening his own studio in 2019, he gained experience in various architecture and design studios, such as Junya Ishigami and Bram Kerkhofs. In his studio, he focuses on a small collection of sculptural objects, all based on the same idea of creating with as little material as possible, in the most efficient and sustainable way.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
