Second Life stool

Mar 05 2013, 10:30 am 0 Marco Russo

A stool created by the Paris based studio Ateliers Michael Herrman, founded by Franco-American architect Michael Herrman. A structure that follows the shape and appearance of a tree trunk, a piece of furniture that tries to metaphorically give a second life to the trees “dead” because of deforestation. A solution composed of a base and a metal seat, polished bronze or aluminum and a body consisting entirely of recycled paper, corrugated cardboard, strips and shreds of paper or old newspapers. An element which is adjustable in height depending on the layers of material, that can transform its function from a small footrest to a high stool.
