The stool has been an exploration for many well known and respected furniture designers such as Charlotte Perriand, Alvar Alto and Wharton Eshrick. Many designers have taken the simplicity of this basic seat to new feats in a variety of different techniques and materials. I approached this project wanting to take a crack at a stool, “my stool”, one that has a personality that reflects me as a designer. This design shows my attraction to playing with material, color and form in a clean and organized fashion. The legs are fabricated out of typical steel extrusions that pierce the square walnut top. The vibrant colors contrast with the natural warmth of the wooden seat and surface and the lines that are created on the surface by the material thickness of the metal are graphic and almost typographic. Stemming from the discovery of these lines I explored many variations of legs and thier placement using profiles of different extrusions. I plan to create a series of stools using this technique.
