Stool-Tool

Konstantin Grcic, 2016

alt

The Stool-Tool resembles a monolithic sculpture and invites users to spontaneously try out its many options. Intuitive use reveals numerous seating positions and possible functions as a small work or storage surface. Lightweight and stackable, the Stool-Tool also has a cutout handle that makes it easy to pick up and store away.

The Stool-Tool is thus suited for a wide range of office applications, from presentation venues and mid-floor zones, workshop and meeting areas to otherwise unused corners and niches.
