Observing the Caterpillar Stool, you can tell that it's well-crafted. Even though it is convincingly contemporary in its precision assembly, it incorporates the textural details of a vintage piece with the appearance of thickset wicker.

But what you can't discern in Hyeonil Jeong's little bench is the flexibility between what are dozens of hinged wooden blocks. The surface might first seem to be firm, but if you take a seat you'll feel the way that the segments sink down and splay for a springy perch without any need for a cushion.

An arched upper frame gives the lattice more vertical space to adjust and carves an elegant silhouette for the Caterpillar Stool. The beautiful curves are complemented in the rounded joints of the chair. Stats for Springy Lumber Seating Trending: Older & Warm
