Growing / Stool


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Inspired by bamboo, each stool unit is like a bamboo joint. When children grow, the stools can be piled up correspondingly, just like growing bamboo. The stools not only save space, but also meet the needs of people of all ages, from toddlers to adults, which also saves resources. The appearance of the growing stools is fresh and natural like green bamboo, enhancing the interior ambience. The image of rising bamboos conveys a message of health, nature, and good luck in Chinese culture. It consoles our hearts and makes our lives more beautiful.

The project is the creative answer for specific needs of a child's environment. This modular Growing stool can be used at home and in public spaces as well. The proposed solution is very intuitive and highly functional for children and adults. Aesthetics and form refer to nature.
