Inroduction / Other Stools Stories:
A Stool Made for TwoTwo stools, their seats made from plywood, their legs from steel tubes, allude to the morphology of a seated human body. The absence of material creating the concave surface simulates a topography that on the one hand reveals the wood's secrets, and on the other creates a kind of mold that completes the form of two buttocks.
It is not an actual ergonomic allusion to the user's buttocks, it probably wouldn't be more comfortable to sit on a "Stool for Two Buttocks" than on any other stool. The allusion is purely conceptual, and the two stools which, visually speaking, are unmistakably "brothers", provide different interpretations of the same subject. The first stool remains whole whereas in the other one the seat has been used to create two separate, standalone stools that accord "respect" to each buttock. The user is invited to arrange the two stools in the way most comfortable for him to rest his two buttocks.
