Artist Maria Gil Ulldemolins asks the question What is craft in the 21st century?
How does design merge wit craft?
How can a “vulgar” material acquire value?

The Bloom Stool was designed for Liberty of London. It plays with laser cutting hand-drawn patterns (perfect vs. imperfect, hand-drawn patterns were scanned and then laser-cut to provide an even but irregular pattern). Given that one day plastic will possibly not be available anymore, the Bloom Stool foresees a future added value: in the 22th century, plastic objects will be treasured.
