The beauty of innovative design is that a simple everyday object can be interpreted in an interesting way to create a functional work of art. A case in point is the ½ stool which is a small seat made out of an actual halved tree trunk. The stool which is manufactured by a polish based design firm Witamina D combines the rustic nature of a raw wood with a steel V-shaped underside which provides a pleasant contrast.
This great home accessory is versatile and can be used both indoors and outdoors due to a protective sealing applied to both the wood and the metal. The oak wood is FSC certified and is covered with an oil-based UV protection for durability and esthetics.
The steel bottom is made of zinc plated, powder coated steel which is not only eye catching but also very stable. To wood and metal are seamlessly fused together in a wedge shaped joint. The stool may not look very stable however, they are able to comfortably withstand a person’s full body weight.
The ½ stool is available on order and shipments are done they day after an order is done. Potential buyers need to check the availability of the product on the Witamina D website before purchasing.
