“Stool (’06’) is a humble, planar seat intended for short- to medium-term sitting. The piece is an extension of Norma’s modular shelving system (’02’) and uses a reductive, threaded-wood mechanism to prompt a flat-pack, solid object of a single primitive material—in this case, American Red Oak. The stool extends the pared-back visual language prompted by the flat planes of traditional open storage, and simutaneously proposes a new entry in the annals of Japanese-influenced seating: timelessly fundamental due in part to its customary omission of back or arms. The addition of a small obround handle in the center of the piece promotes mobility and interaction for the café setting and beyond. The Shelf stool is the second in a series of systematized moveables that will ultimately comprise work surfaces and lighting solutions in addition to storage and seating.”
