The Stool Connection

Quadratic much? At the intersection between two curves comes this stool right here. Not to be kicked around all too much! It’s called the “f(x) stool” it’s the interconnection. It’s the birch, the plywood, and the adjustability in mathematics. As the curves get further away from one another, the seat gets wider, but you might feel a bit more nervous, as the support reduces.

How many stools does it take to fill a house? I dare anyone to collect every single stool ever published on Yanko and put that in your quadratic and smoke it. You’d have quite the room! No need for a chair! It’s the middle, between floor and seat. And bar stool.

    Hmmm I like the design, but I’m not sure what’s the purpose of this stool is for. Why is it divided into two parts? Any reasons? Fill me in please.

      seems like a practical application of some mathematical concept involving general F(x) formulas (change one value and the whole graph changes). the fact that pulling it further apart only reduces its stability and doesn’t make anything else happen is underwhelming though..

      f(x)stool is not devided two unit.
      When seat board is wided to some degree, structure of this stool steady to stop.
      Stool has feature that easy to movable frequently than chair or sofa. People use stool for simple sitting rather than for comfort. So, stool has big seat board, has little attraction. But too small seat board makes big user uncomfortable. So we sometimes wish seat area of stool is bigger or smaller.
      f(x)stool is designed for this poeple.
      As a result of using notion of quadratic function, stool gets additional function that is useful.

    Just my 1 cent, while I see absolutely no practical reason for this stool, I do see someone’s behind being pinched while leaning back and forth. If I’m the only one that leans like that, then disregard my comment.

  • There is some mathematical reason behind this type of stool structure.
