Sit and Step Stool

Sitting posture analysis

Individuals vary in their chosen sitting postures when in a stool. Some prefer sitting high, some prefer a semi-reclined posture, while others like having something to rest their feet on. Below is a survey of the seating preferences and seat heights of 20 individuals.

Inspiration and Concept

When I contemplate this idea, what I aim to create is a structured stool that embodies the dual concepts of strength and fragility, firmness and softness, simultaneously.

Prototype Experimentation in Multiple Dimensions

I advanced this concept further by conducting structural prototype experiments in both horizontal and vertical dimensions, followed by the fabrication of the selected model at a 1:1 scale.

Enhancing Design Through 3D Iteration

3D modeling and prototypes proceeded in alternation, with the final version undergoing updates in terms of dimensions, thickness, structure, and connection methods.
