This project began as an experiment to express the excellence of bent plywood in a maximized way. The aim was not only to explore sculptural beauty, but to also maximize functionality within a minimal structure. The final result is a stool with a mono-coque structure, created from a single sheet of plywood. Unlike other stools there is no distracting division between its parts. The seat and body of the stool seamlessly merge from one to the other in a single fluid motion. The stool has a large contact area between itself and the floor to disperse the pressure.
