The Beetle Stool is a conceptual furniture inspired by the Brazilian iconography. The product references to Brazilian fauna, crafts, and popular legends but also is intended to be technologically produced by a small corporation. The stool is made of 15mm recycled Polypropylene, cutted with laser and assembled without glues. That guarantees the low impact production of a mono-material product. The Beetle Stool is more than just a simple pretty piece of furniture, itŽs a poetic object.
