This object is full of stories
This stool is made of polyethylene sheets sandwiched between two white cardboard panels, each with three embedded magnets, that link to form a cylinder shape. Part of a modular system, the Softseating stool can be assembled into a seat or stacked to section interior space. Easily transported when flat, the stool's polyethylene sheets pop into a circular object when fanned outward. The thin paper is sturdy enough to support weight, yet conforms to a user’s body for comfort. Portable, lightweight, and recyclable (but not designed for disposability), Softseating is a furniture system that is customizable to suit its users’ needs.
