Johanna Dehio, Hockerbank, 2010 "Arbeitstitel." the "Hockerbank" (stool-bench) is inspired by makeshift seating. The series consists of several stools, which are supplemented by a plank with round cut-outs; and round tables, which can be transformed, in the same manner, into a long table. (via NotCot.org)
Beautiful stool so I can sit to do the dishes and cook on a "good" day. Adding to the dream "to buy" list. If only I had an extra $1000. Think I'll go with a simpler one.
The Hangzhou Stool - by Atelier Chen Min - consists of many layers of bamboo veneer. Each veneer is made of several ultra thin bamboo layers, aligned vertical to each other. Each veneer becomes not only very flexible but also robust. The layers give a very special “arc” of the stool, just like the ripples on the water surface. When sit, the more weight the stool receives, the deeper the arc will be bent, and therefore the more elasticity the user will feel. www.chen-min.com
