japanese design studio tanimatsumura‘s (takaaki tani and kazunori matsumura) ‘waft’,
a stool made of hybrid plywood. the process of developing the the seat involves laminating
and binding aluminum and beech wood together under pressure, making the plywood lightweight and flexible.
because of the material’s thinness steric torsion has been used to twist the legs of the stool to provide
enough strength to support the weight of each sitter. the idea of the stool’s form is meant to bring about
the depiction of leaves ‘floating in the air’.
