Stool no.1

I’ve been thinking a lot about the role of designers in the world since Covid-19. We need to do better, to think harder, and push ourselves into a new way of approaching projects. We are spoilt without supply chains, with the availability of any material we want. We don’t care enough about where these things come from, or how our products are finally shipped. I gave myself a brief of designing more with less, 3 materials (OSB, glue, and paint) to create a product and its packaging.
