Ribbon Stool / stool

Ribbon Stool
Ribbon Stool

Ribbon is an innovative approach to a traditional material -plywood, which I bend in three directions.The organic form results from the behaviour of the material -the layers of veneer follow the natural shape of the wood grain.The object looks like it was made from a single ‘ribbon’ of plywood, but it is not-the two pressed modules form one leg, and the three identical legs make up the seat.The profiles are shaped in three dimensions, this means we can use less material to obtain a similar stiffness. Ecological and economical at the same time.This lightweight construction provides comfortable seat.I used wood from a local beech tree.
