Mu Han Kao's Ply Stool made from a single sheet of wood
Mu Hau Kao is a young product designer, who graduated at Camberwell College of Arts. His most outstanding project so far is the Ply Stool, which goes against reason and any kind of manufacturers’ advice. Though it looks as basic as possible, the existence of such piece of a furniture is a lesser miracle. Kao used a single, extremely thin sheet of plywood to compose a seating solution. Mainly this choice of construction method is the reason behind the stool’s geniously minimalist shape, that, luckily for Kao, is in complete accordance with today’s interior trends.
Since the piece is made of a single piece of material, it is an extremely compact seat where no parts are without any function. The plywood sheet was bent and curved into a u-shape that creates the entire structure. The inner dome forms the seat, while the footrests double as stopping points allowing for easy stacking. Which is, for that matter, a very important feature, as the lightness of the seat predetermined it to be frequently taken out and then packed away. Mu Hau Kao’s efforts for creating the sleekest stool ever did not go without any recognition: at last year’s 100% London, it got the prestigious 2015 New Designer’s Award.
