Sponge and wooden stool

This is the stool composed of two materials those hardness are different, sponge and wood. The sponge produces comfort and the wood produces stability when sitting. The two materials cut with a semi-circular motif just touch without any steps and gaps. In other words, they are not bonded. Although it is a very ordinary stool as structure, it is expected to function as a part of a set by such form, detail, and production accuracy. It is the collective furniture that consists of nine pieces as a whole, and also becomes a table, shelf, and partition depending on the arrangement and the presence or absence of sponge.
