L-Stool / Furniture, Stool


L-Stool is a unique and intriguing piece of furniture, different from anything that exists today.
I wanted to challenge people's perceptions about standards and took a surprising, fun and innovative approach.
The idea of the L-Stool is based on my childhood memories, when we used to lift a friend by holding hands and creating a seat. Four separate identical parts of the stool overlapping each other and creating a strong structure able to support a person's weight, imitating four woven hands.
L-Stool is a symbol of support and care.
Its name is based on the appearance and meaning and refers to the letter "L" which stands for "Love".
