it's been a while since i posted any furniture, or things about skateboarding, so lucky i came across this! the designer, jason podlaski, uses old broken decks and one truck to create these stools. from the original post:

podlaski observed that most broken board are severed at the truck while a smaller majority are split in half. using this info he created a design that uses the longer and more abundant ‘broken at the truck’ pieces for legs, while the ‘broken in half’ pieces form the seat. podlaski builds the stools in his factory, reviving skateboards destined for landfill. each stool is unique, making the natural wear-and-tear an integral element in the design.
