“The Swing is the ultimate way of experiencing freedom”
Ter Kulve and Weltevree both share the vision that new possibilities originate in outdoor spaces. His mobile ‘Swing’ is a perfect example of the way Ter Kulve’s designs give the user the ability to make a public space his own, to turn any ordinary lamppost or tree into a playground. Thor: “The Swing is the ultimate way of experiencing freedom”. It is the embodiment of playing with nature. The Swing has been rewarded with the Rabo Burgemeester de Bruin Prize, the cultural incentive prize for artists at the start of their career. The Serious Swing is also a design by Thor ter Kulve.
The Carrier by Thor ter Kulve is a multifunctional piece of furniture. Thor: “It is ideal for easily transporting firewood from the deck of my boat to my wood-burning stove inside. At the same time it doesn’t take any unnecessary space: you can sit on it and underneath the seat is plenty of storage space.”
