The stool series investigates frameworks of mass production and mass customization through digital fabrication and parametric design.
The investigation is manifested through the design and fabrication of stools that exhibit serial difference while being a part of a singular family.
A stool is intrinsically a surface lifted off the floor to support a human body. Our design distinguishes the seat from the legs through pairing these processes.
The seat is CNC-milled. The legs angle outward at varying amounts. The seat forms are all unique. The 3D printed parts (the joint and parts within the seats) are used to mediate the varying height differences caused by the changing leg angles, allowing all the leg components to be cut at the same length. Across the same stool, all legs are identical allowing them to be off the shelf and cut to the same length (to reduce errors in the process of making).
