Squall Stool

A small stool constructed from reclaimed CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) architectural off cuts, laminated and milled to final form using a KUKA robotic arm with a router spindle.  The form is a parametric loft that can be modified into a family of serial difference, each unique.  The loft results in a soft drape, reminiscent of flowing fabric.

The stools are mounted on recessed casters resulting in a half inch shadow reveal, enabling the heavy mass of the object to move gracefully as the draping suggests.

Designed with UO Professor Linda Zimmer as part of a research grant through OSU's Tallwood Design Institute and the USDA.
