Tulpi-InMotion Bench by Marco Manders

Home > Winners > #56397


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Tulpi-InMotion

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Bench

INSPIRATION:
Tulpi-InMotion is designer Marco Manders Sidekick design, a new addition to the Tulpi product line inspired by the Tulip. Marco Manders visionary designs are genuinely eye-catching not just for their organic shapes, which are constant reminders of the beauty of nature, but primarily because they epitomise the importance of social design. This designer embraces the cohesion of environment and people, playfully contributing to, and thus enhancing, the value, appearance and importance of our surroundings.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
I wanted to create an experience to remember my childhood; rockin on a chair, swinging on a swing and floating on an air mattress. The user should imagine themselves in a peaceful atmosphere by a slight fluctuation. No theme park attraction to be sick, but just enough to satisfy the mind and body.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The corporate identity of Tulpi is integrated in the arm of the Tulpi-InMotion. The arm of the Bench is constructed so you experience a smooth rocking.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The Tulpi-InMotion has gone through a one year development, concentrating on its design, ergonomic features and engineering process. It started in January 2016 and was produced in January 2017.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The Tulpi-InMotion is made of hot-dip galvanized steel, powder coated or stainless steel. Both treatments prolong the life of the Tulpi-InMotion. The Tulpi-InMotion is available in different variants. You can choose for a steel, textilene or Bamboo seating area.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Hight: 883mm Depth: 744mm Length: Starting at 1400mm two seat

TAGS:
Tulpi, bench, street furniture, Dutch Design, Tulip, multiply sitting

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenge was to integrate the shape of a tulip in the bench and to create a smooth rocking for the user.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
Tulpi B.V.

PROFILE:
Tulpi-design is based in Nieuwegein, The Netherlands, founded in April 2011 and owned by designer Marco Manders. Marco Manders started his business in graphic design almost thirty years ago. He gradually gained interest in product design. He entered his idea for the Tulpi-seat during a Dutch government pitch, an event where professionals were invited to enter their new design ideas for public space design. His entry was well received, but not the winner. By that time Manders had fallen in love with design for public spaces after which he decided to further develop and design the Tulpi-seat. The Tulpi-seat is designed to create more fun and color in our outdoor environments. The organic design of the chair is an ode to the tulip. Tulpi’s are high quality products: not only the exterior was a major focus point during the product development, we have also put a lot of work into the ergonomic features. The Tulpi’s constantly supports our lower back. Tulpi’s are highly innovative: the folding element of the chair guarantees a dry and clean seat. During the Dutch Design Week 2011 an independent jury concluded that The Tulpi richly qualifies for the predicate Good Industrial Design and awarded the Tulpi with the special GIO Award for most Original Design and Good Industrial Design (GIO). The Tulpi is a typical Dutch Design which we can characterise as: minimalistic, experimental, innovative, quirky and humorous. The Tulpi’s truly came to life at the beginning of 2012, when the chairs were ready for production. The chairs are a true Dutch Design product, completely produced in The Netherlands. Manders is currently working on more designs.
