Inroduction / Other Stools Stories:
"A Grager in a Stool" (material: steel pipes, plywood)
A special stool for the Hebrew month of Adar. It seems almost "ordinary", but under the seat hides a wooden grager, which makes it possible for the person who is sitting on the stool to occupy his hands as he sits. When the sitter plays with the grager, a gentle vibration moves through his buttocks. This vibration is an imitate echo to the movement of the hands. "It compensates!" states Kaufman in order to define the sensation of the vibrations. He describes the stool as an encounter or an "accident between two objects", with a humoristic undertone. This is not the first grager Kaufman designed. He has built several gragers in the past, in wood and plastic, and explored the variations in the sound omitted through each one of the materials.
The stool belongs to the group of stools "Swing, Jump, Rotate", which provide the people sitting on them with a sitting experience.
