There’s just something about a smartly designed piece of furniture, that can meet a number of needs, that ticks all the checkboxes of me. And if they also manage to be space-saving, and somewhat transformative, that’s some additional brownie points for them. Since space constraint is a legitimate real-time issue in most modern apartments today, it’s become almost imperative to search and seek out functional, ergonomic, and compact furniture designs for our homes. And a furniture design that I recently came across, that would be an excellent addition to your contemporary homes is the S1 stool and side table by Alexander Lotersztain.
Designer: Alexander Lotersztain for Derlot
Designed by Australian designer Alexander Lotersztain for the furniture brand Derlot, the minimalist and simple S1 stool doubles up as a handy side table! The stool/side table has a simple form that is inspired by an I-beam, which is a structural member with an I-shaped cross-section. The S1 stool is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use, owing to its versatile form and universal design.
“Strikingly minimalist, S1 captures the modesty of a stool yet quietly commands any space,” said Australian brand Derlot. “S1 can be both a stool or a side table for indoor or outdoor use – a solid reminder that simplicity equals versatility.” The stool is crafted from a durable thermoplastic called low-density polyethylene (LDPE), which makes it a fully recyclable product that can be recycled at the end of its life cycle. The S1 stool and side table is available in a range of varied colors such as orange and green.
The furniture piece is also available in three heights to maximize its versatility. It is an adaptable and functional design that is an excellent fit for modern homes where space issues seem to reign supreme. You can alternate between the piece’s stool and side table form, switching between both variants depending on the need of the hour. All in all, the S1 side table and stool is a minimalist, utilitarian, and functional piece that can fit into any corner of your home. It occupies minimum space while providing maximum functionality.
