Stool Design S01

This project originated from an idea of designing a seat that appeared unstable and chaotic. I wanted to balance coarse geometric shapes and simple forms of construction with subtle curves and refined finishes.
The stool is 30″ tall. The bottom of the seat is constructed from hot-rolled, mild steel. It was painted black and scuffed to highlight coarse grind marks and mill scale. The top of the seat is polished stainless steel. The stool is titled S01. It will be auctioned at the CRUSH  Auction at the Tucson Museum of Art on March 5th.

Stool Prototype

The stool is a tri-symmetrical design constructed of stainless steel and mild steel. It is a structurally strong furniture piece inspired by modern industrial forms of design and fabrication. More to come.
