“Spiral Stool” is designed with the idea of creating structural module with only cardboard material, which is recyclable and sustainable. The rotated squares on top and bottom create unique fractal elevation that reflects lights in different angles. Both children and adults can use the Spiral Stool while kids can even paint on it, which can also use as modular units to configure as a low table. Due to its structural system and using neither hardware nor glue, the most challenging aspect of designing Spiral Stool is the precise dimension and accurate manufacturing. Inspired from the ancient wisdom, we adopted a way which is mortise and tenon joint alike, let eight pieces of cardboard sheets connect with each other vertically, so that the Spiral Stool can stand maximum weight of 100 kilograms.
Spiral Stool has been awarded Platinum Level of A’Design Award in 2016 and been exhibited at Taipei Design Expo 2015 and MOOD-Museum of Design Como, Italy in 2016.
