The main guideline of the design was to integrate an experimental spirit, principles of process and gained experiences into the object. Accordingly, the piece of furniture exhibited here was merely a snatched moment of an arc of learning and is the fourth realised piece of the experimentation. As an experimental project, the form was not predefined, rather it was determined by the usability and characteristics of the found and left-over materials available. The nature of the stool is characterised by the rotation of the seat surface at right angles and accentuation of the two points of failure that transpired during the creative process. The stool’s legs are connected by perpendicular elements which meet at a right angle. The orientation of the seating surface resting on the legs is intended so that the user does not collide with the supporting elements of the stool. The rectangular piece joining the three legs became necessary to correct the object’s stability. Additionally, the conjoining element between the oak and the American walnut legs was recycled, which made it necessary to supplement the old joint. This resulted in an addition that made the piece even more characteristic: a wooden element of a lighter shade was inserted into a darker piece. The beauty of the difficulties encountered during the process was emphasised by the difference in the tones of wood. Based on the subjective judgment of the designer, the object gained its final form as it would not have withstood further experimentation.
