At the fast-changing modern era, life styles
are tending to emphasize on both high renewing
rate and the sense of beauty, especially in
the Eastern world. In response to it, we
focused on designing a furniture that meets
the modern life style. “Spiral Stool” is
designed with the idea of creating structural
module with only cardboard material, which is
recyclable and sustainable. The rotated
squares on top and bottom create unique
fractal elevation that reflects lights in
different angles. Both children and adults can
use the Spiral Stool while kids can even paint
on it, which can also use as modular units to
configure as a low table. Due to its
structural system and using neither hardware
nor glue, the most challenging aspect of
designing Spiral Stool is the precise
dimension and accurate manufacturing.
