The Venti

FÓLK teamed up with German designer Marcus Götschl, to brainstorm about usable products from steel sheet leftovers. Marcus realized that the biggest opportunity to change the perception of the material was to change the appearance of the sheets from a 2-dimensional perception to a 3-dimensional perception.

Cubic side table

He experimented with different shapes and finally a collection of squared and rectangular side tables were born. We call them Venti Side tables to highlight the origin of the material which is leftover sheets from ventilation systems. 

Meet the designer

From his studio in Munich, Marcus rethinks the way things are designed and built and their impact on our daily lives. He celebrates craftsmanship that exudes a timeless and honest aesthetic, with a focus on natural materials. His work is inspired by personal experiences and those moments in life that leave him scratching his head. Marcus is aware of the responsibility and opportunity of design in an age of consumerism, mass production, and social injustice. He believes that there is much to be done in the future to provide the world with products that are fair in all social and environmental contexts. 

Leftover ventilation sheets

Steel sheets are used for many things, one of them is in the construction of ventilation systems.

When making ventilation systems there are steady cutoffs in the production. These cutoffs are in smaller sizes and various shapes. Instead of throwing them out, the manufacturer puts them aside hoping they can be used for something else.

"The intention was to recall the material's industrial past and transform it into meaningful works of aesthetic and functional significance. The focus on simplicity reveals the beauty of the material".
- Marcus Götschl
