The Plum Stool is a concept that organically combines structure, form and material into one. The aerodynamic form of The Plum Stool emulates the way that natural forms grow and evolve, always aiming for efficiency.
The Plum Stool Series 1 is the first of its kind in exploring the way carbon fibre can be used to create structural form. The stool is designed to have strategic ribs where pressure and weight will be applied. By building ribs with the fabric folds, the stool’s structure is able to accomplish maximum strength and lightness. Similar to the stem of a leaf, or the shaft of a feather, these ribs give additional resistance to pressure and compression.
‘Plum’ in the name is a derivative of the word, ‘pluma’, which translates to ‘feather’ in Spanish; hence, capturing the idea that by combining new material, form creation and structural logic, astonishing lightness can be accomplished. The form of the stool emulates the movement of a ballet dancer and asymmetrically moves in space, while supplying an elegant and comfortable seating area.
