The Dome Stool is a stunning piece of furniture. Although it clearly functions as a practical seat, the Dome Stool could easily be displayed as an art piece. The seat's surface takes on a wiry arched aesthetic that many would not want to sit on for fear of making it collapse. Nevertheless, for all of its delicacies, it is strong enough to sit on. More than that, it will make people feel as though they are sitting on air.

Designed by Studio Toer, a design firm based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, the Dome Stool has an honest appearance due to the simple materials used: wood and metal. Aside from the steel wires sprouting from the top of the Dome Stool, it might as well be a standard seat. Stats for Wiry Arched Seating Trending: Older & Warm
