British designer Michael Marriott has designed a plywood stool for fashion brand Paul Smith.
Inspired by the versatility of materials and Michael’s goal to design truly modern objects, the stool is made out of 6mm plywood and comes boxed and flat-packed in five parts. Made from sustainable birch plywood from the rich forests of Finland, each stool is incredibly light-weight. Easily assembled with four ‘zip ties’, the result is small and simple structure that is strong enough to sit or stand on.
Each individual stool is hand-finished with a colourful, geometric screen-print. The result is a stool which is well considered, a versatile piece of furniture made to fit perfectly with modern day life – easy to move, construct or deconstruct.
Simple, functional and sustainable, the Michael Marriott Ply stool is both an innovative and charming piece of design. Individually numbered and limited to 100 pieces, the Michael Marriott stools will be exclusive to Paul Smith shops.
I like this a lot!
