Eco-Stool was designed so that a set of three stools could be fully fabricated from one 4’x8’ sheet of Baltic birch plywood. Fully utilizing all the material from one sheet of plywood while respecting the ergonomics of a stool were the major challenges in this project. Two square feet of total waste is created in the construction of each set of three stools. The connection details are precise mortise and tension joints that once pressed require no unsightly secondary connection details. This detail grants clean unobstructed planes as the sides of the stool. Minimal cost and material with maximum elegance is the foundation for Eco-Stool.
