Steel Stool is a minimalist prototype created by London- and Avignon-based Noon Studio. The studio was created by two designers, Gautier Pelegrin and Vincent Taïani, about five years ago
Materially speaking, Steel Stool is as simple as it looks. The wooden Y-frame is supported by a thing sheet of steel, and measures a cube of 350×350x350mm. The stools can be assembled together to create an interestingly modular storage system. There is also a handle cutout on one end of the Y-frame.
I mainly love this piece due to its stark simplicity and contrasting use of materials. The industrially worn steel is perfectly juxtaposed alongside the smoothness of the oak. Put together as a bookshelf, the materials are even more defined and contrasting.
