2011, Maple wood, felt, 30"diameter x 12"h
An object’s design can be more enjoyable than its
basic function. My design extends from an exploration
of interaction; a playfulness between object and user.
My goal is to create a tactile, friendly relationship between a dynamic product and its user. This stool is made from maple wood and the cushion is covered in interchangeable felt sheets. The oversized circle form
of the stool in relationship with the relatively short height creates an easily approachable and functional piece of furniture. These exaggerated details are derived from the shape and function of embroidery frames. The usability facilitates variation with the stool and cedes control to the owner.
