The brief of this project was about designing a stool and required an explicit relationship between this product and the piece of lighting design that that is a part of this competition as well.

This stool is made of steel tube. It is only welded in one spot, where the footrest connects to the vertical pole. The seat is made of either leather or some other strong textile and wraps around the frame.
