When I first laid eyes on this image, I thought ok what’s so special about this picture, it’s just a canvas photo of a woman sitting on a chair that’s been printed on a canvas. But then I scrolled down and looked at the pictures from different angles.
Jack Smith a design graduate student has designed a folding, flat pack 3 legged stool that gets stronger the more pressure is put on it. It’s design and creativity at it’s best – no specially designed fasteners or hinges are used, all the components are ready-made and readily available.
See how Jack and a couple of his friends demonstrate how strong this little stool is on Dornob
Dutch artist Jólan van der Wiel designed a stool that is made using gravity, plastic and magnetic fields. How you may ask, well by using a magnet machine and specifically designed plastic, Jólan manipulates the plastic to form and shape itself by positioning the magnetic fields in the machine, opposing each other. Where the fields are in relation to each other determines what the Gravity Stool will eventually look like.
This Screwy Stool from Welsky is ingenious in design. It adjusts to the perfect height for the user with a simple turn of the seat into the threads of the frame. It would solve a lot of short people problems, I think.
