Banco Gi / Stool

Banco Gi
Banco Gi

My purpose was to create a stool which contains the word "mobility" as your main characteristic. Therefore, I developed a sit-stand stool in two versions, the first version is indicated for outdoor chores, and the second version is indicated for indoor chores. Nevertheless, both versions possess the same concept. In this project, I intended to introduce a lifestyle, where my stool can provide comfort for people in situations where people have to stand-up for long hours or for people who have bad posture, offering them the correct seat.
The seat is design with an inverted dome shape, created to alleviate the pressure between the support seat.
