Bench & Stool
A useful place to perch for phone calls, change shoes or sit when you have been naughty…
The intentions of this project are three fold:
- To functionally take cues from the multi-use carpeted 2nd step to the first floor of a home- a useful place to perch for phone calls, change shoes, sit when you have been naughty…
- To explore the form of the traditional saw horse. The aim is to employ both the stance and construction that these utilitarian objects have.
- To work closely with an upholsterer in the exploration of intentions 1 & 2, paying particular attention to stitch and quilting details.
