"This stool is the first project of our collaboration with the Austrian mechanical engineering company Hammerschmid MB using their new material 3Dpolypropylene. Their newly developed technique makes the production of small quantities economically feasible.
The design of the stool is based on traditional archetypes, their basic simplicity in form and function. The organically shaped 3Dpolpropylene seat is supported by tapered legs made of oiled European oak. The seat itself is generously proportioned for comfort, its material tactile and contemporary. The ends of the legs are threaded and screwed into the seat, a connection that is both simple and sophisticated given the two very different materials of the joint."
