The Perplex Stool is a symmetrical stacking stool for use both indoors and outdoors. It is one of a series of furniture products arising from experiments into a new material process - GripMetal.
Stools are simple seating devices and hold the potential to be sculptural while remaining highly functional. The centre of this stacking stool is the very thin composite seat of aluminum and polyethylene making it ideal for outdoor use among other applications.
The form evolved through an interest in expressing the strength of the seat by cantilevering it as far as possible. In response to a trend toward flexible seating devices in the office, this stool is also symmetrical and flexible in use.
This collection of furniture pieces was featured at IDS16 in Toronto in January 2016.
