Solidarity Stools


Solidarity is a pair of stools that utilizes glueless wood joinery. The stools are inspired by traditional Chinese woodworking, Newton’s third law, and human relationships, ideas gathered during my summer internship at Studio Dunn.

The stools are designed to be flat-packed and may be assembled by the end-user. The only tool that is required is a mallet. Unlike most ready-to-assemble furniture, however, it is designed to be permanent post-assembly. This permanence causes the user’s involvement in the making process to become more significant. 

The main target consumer is therefore young couples/families who are buying their first home, a commitment that signals a turning point in their lives.

The pair of stools were exhibited at “Freshly Made” at Studio Dunn in 2014.
