SOS Stool, 2008

The SOS Stool (produced by Casamania) blurs typological boundaries that define the acts of sitting, holding and carrying. The two elements attached to the seat can be used as cup or wineglass holders, handles or hooks. The top surface features a rim, which allows it to be used as a tray. The SOS Stool is included in the permanent design collections of Centre National d’Art et de Culture Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Philadelphia [PA] Museum of Art and the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montreal.
