POLSPOTTEN x Carice van Houten


Creativity. Individuality. Functionality. These are the words that come up when people see the POLSPOTTEN Zig Zag stool. 

It’s also what Carice van Houten thinks of when she sees them. 

That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our latest collaboration featuring the famous Dutch actress. This time, with her own interpretation of the POLSPOTTEN Zig Zag stools.

Throughout her career, Carice van Houten was always drawn to the Zig Zag stool. She noticed how it stood out in a crowd and marched to the beat of its own drum. That’s why she wanted to take the iconic design and give it a whole new edge.

You may have seen the Zig Zag stools before. But you haven’t seen them like this before.

Interview with Carice van Houten

"For the Zig Zag we decided to use the colors that you see in my interior."

Were there any ideas when the opportunity arose to work with POLSPOTTEN?
“When I brainstormed with the team beforehand, there was an immediate click. We all love quirky colors and we came up with 25 ideas right away. They went in all directions, we also thought about processing textiles or ceramics. I love homeware and living objects so the ideas never stop in my head.”

Why did you decide to give the Zig Zag a new look?
“The stool has a design that stands out the most. I often see the item in hotels. The design is simple yet authentic.has always appealed to me because of the shades: I really like color. In addition, the stool is sturdy, has a beautiful design, and, not to mention, it’s functional. I like beautiful design but I also like that designs can be used. And you find that in at the Zig Zag. You can put something on it, use it as a home accessory or sit on it yourself. It is multifunctional and I like that.
This afternoon we edited the classic. We used different patterns and color combinations for this.”

How did the color choice come about? And how do the colors of the Zig Zag relate to your home?
During my renovation I imposed a kind of dogma on myself: no white. For the Zig Zag we decided to use the colors that you see in my interior. The stools therefore reflect the atmosphere of my home in a nutshell. From carpet to lamp to sofa.

What is your favorite color combination of the Zig Zag? 
“Yeah, see that's the problem. I have a very eclectic taste. I like too many things and can't choose.”
