OPEN STOOL / Stool

OPEN STOOL
OPEN STOOL

Stool in general is not only a place to sit on, it can also be an extra surface to put things on, a substitute for a ladder to reach out things and if it's a well designed one a decoration for the interior.

OPEN STOOL reflects modern aesthetics, is really solid, easy to assemble and eco friendly. It's made of birch plywood. And it's simple to make it – all parts of the stool have finger joints that perfectly fit in one another. This kind of joining construction is extremely reliable as the weight is distributed on all stiffening plates.

Plus, all the parts when cut out of board are placed specularly leaving almost no waste.
