Stools aren’t exactly an important fixture in most homes but people buy them because they serve many purposes. You use them for casual seating or maybe to work as a stand when you want to reach something high.
The Mini Stools by Napp Studio are modern versions of the stool chairs usually seen in Asia. Stools are common in everyday settings where people gather to talk and just be with one another to catch up on stories. These stools are ready for another round of stories wherever you are in the world.
Designer: Aron TSANG and Natalie KO
The small stools are redesigned into something more multi-functional and contemporary. It’s also undeniable they have a major aesthetic appeal. The seats don’t look the same as each differs from the rest. Napp Studio knows contemporary design and can deliver stools using three kinds of solid wood.
The Mini Stools appear they are made using different objects. They’re just made of wood in different shapes and sizes. The natural wood finish is used and complemented by green paint on some parts.
Each stool is designed after a word: lean, tread, lay, and stamp. Looking at every piece is like looking at what could have been the design process of the creators. Only one stool has a round seat, while the three others appear square but in different styles.
There are other stool designs we found as interesting as the Mini Stools. We showed you furniture designs that prove stools are better than chairs for posture. The laser-cut stool looks like a parked spaceship, while the Front Stool boasts an intuitive design that allows it to work beyond as an entryway seat.
We found the 360-degree rotating ergonomic stool environment-friendly. We also enjoyed looking at the oddly satisfying stool design using just three interlocking strips of wood. In many ways, the Mini Stools set reminds us of the accordion-shaped seat but without playing a musical note.
The Mini Stool isn’t anything like the Eulji-ro Stool, but they both make gatherings happen. People who love to be together will need options to be comfortable. Such stools will be of optimum use for hours as long as people talk and enjoy each other’s company.
Stools are timeless and the Mini Stools can last forever. Well, not forever, but it’s durable enough to last a lifetime. The designers give the ubiquitous stool a modern and contemporary look. The Mini Stools can be mistaken for a sculpture installation if you just leave them somewhere.
