Stack Up

Stool Set for Small Spaces

2019

Designed with form and function in mind, Stack Up is a set of three stackable stools meant to provide extra seating when needed and compactly stored away. I used traditional and modern woodworking techniques to create this set. This piece was featured in the NJIT Furniture Studio Showcase at Canal Street Market in New York City in 2019.

Process

I fabricated these stools myself mainly using ash wood and bent baltic birch plywood.

Below are a few photos of the process.
