By setting up a small factory at the historic side of the Zaanse Schans, in the province of North Holland, Merel Karhof was able to use only WIND to make this incredible collection furniture. One sawmill for cutting the wood and another mill that ground the minerals for the paint with which she dyed wool upholstery fabric produced through her own wind-powered knitting machine. An amazing story. Last week she gave an online interview at the New York Times. I enjoyed reading it. 

Now I need to know where I can buy one of these stools, the bench or just a tiny stool :) They are all very welcome in my home.

Merel Karhof is a 34-year-old Dutch designer who lives in London and  studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven in  NL and at the Royal College of Art in London. And it was here that she did her firsta big research about wind... the rest is history!
