About this project

The brief i gave to myself for this project was, to re-design the simple wedge jointed stool, which is one of the earliest pieces of furniture known. I gave myself the task of keeping the proven constructional durability of the stool, whilst adding a simple sharpness and angular nature to the finished form.
Its all about how the legs meet the angle of the underside of the top. This enables the painting of plains of colour.
Current project- under development.
