Tre / Stool


In these days of selfies and individuality, Tre is a stool or bench that people can share in front of TV or during their eating time. They are also able to use two of the stools to seat and use the middle one to share as a table – to share drinks, food, play chess, etc. The main idea of this product is sharing a space, a moment, to bring people closer of friends and family. It works almost like a “matrioshka doll”, but not as box, the three pieces just fit each other. This stool can be made of recyclable wooden batten, sharing more than space, sharing also the idea of environmental care.
