pit – Ardie Van Bommel – Field Furniture “Pure Nature” – concept | Z33 – art in public space


This is actually my very first project. I graduated from the Design Academy of Eindhoven
in December 2010. This concept was created during my last year in college. I was searching for the possibility
to portray a food process, during which I ended up in places
such as an apple orchard. which is essentially a farmyard, but I wished to reconceptualize it
into a recreational space. Here, it has evolved into a meeting place. And so, together with the creation of
Dré Wapenaar’s tree tents, it delivers all the facilities needed for spending the night in the open space. Furniture Design The project continues to grow every week. Soon there will be an entire field kitchen, I am thinking about creating sleep units. It is constantly growing, that’s the difference. Crates
Mobility The entire design has been derived from these large-size crates. What’s so special about them, is that they can be lifted
and moved by fork-lift trucks. I just couldn’t change that, I just thought that was too nice a feature. Visitors
Use of units I imagine this as part of
an entire kitchen furnishing: a washing unit, a cooking unit,
a working unit; So, as a visitor in an apple orchard, you are able to cook self-picked apples. The truck can move your dinner unit under the sun, and you are all set to enjoy
your freshly-picked and cooked apples. It can’t get any more pure than that,
I don’t think.
