Bench & Stool

   

Product Summary
A useful place to perch for phone calls, change shoes or sit when you have been naughty…

Product Story

The intentions of this project are three fold:

  1. 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…
  2. To explore the form of the traditional saw horse. The aim is to employ both the stance and construction that these utilitarian objects have.
  3. To work closely with an upholsterer in the exploration of intentions 1 & 2, paying particular attention to stitch and quilting details.
