Comfy Wooden Stools
The Ash Cushion by Mary Dickerson is Responsive to Touch

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Nov 20, 12

Wood may often be thought of as warm and welcoming, but it is also hard and unforgiving; the Ash Cushion changes the latter perception. It is a unique creation that mimics the feel of a cushion using ash wood, hence its name.

Conceived and created by young designer Mary Dickerson, the Ash Cushion achieves this deceptively soft and responsive surface through a series of strategic cuts. Essentially, Dickerson has sliced away thin layers from wooden columns. This gives the column a springiness that is not often seen with wood materials. When a group of columns are combined together, the resulting seat becomes responsive to touch. This means it gives when a person sits on it.
