FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The first idea was to make transparent and collapsible stool with no screws or glue. After that we chose a less expensive material - plywood which could help us to scale with this product. We have found partner company with different CNC milling machines which has helped us to develop our design further. After a while we had a second design of our stool which takes less than a minute to assemble and disassemble it. We use 1st class birch plywood. After we cut it with a CNC machine it goes through sanding, varnishing or oiling process.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We studied construction technologies to create a product with no additional tools. For quality research group of random participants was created, who tried the product personally. Later participant’s experience was evaluated to measure the results. Participants had discussion about product specifications and functions, filled the specialized survey to provide more details about their experience and insights. Finally, the results showed that almost all participants had an excellent impression, which means that the product is attractive: easy, fast and solid to use.

CHALLENGE:
Create insightful design product, which does not need any extra tools, is solid and made from natural materials. For this reason, eco plywood is used. The minimalistic and simple design makes the product meaningful and functional for every user daily. Once the product was created, we faced high precision requirements. Later we came up with the solution to the problem that every extra dimension might damage the construction of the product, which means that we are extremely detailed and take care of the product quality and design.
