Offset

Redesigning a process

If you think about a wooden stool with a bent wooden seat, you would probably think about a monolithic seat, where a single piece of wood is bent and then cut to shape. With Offset, I tried to change this habit by using bent wood differently: a big slab of wood is bent to a specific angle and then different boomerangs are cut to measure and then assembled in an offset position to create the seat, compressing the three legs. The resulting board is then milled in order to create the needed roundness, and the stool is done, far more resistant than a standard one because the wooden fibers work transversally.
