PIK Stool designer Jarred Christison wanted to capture the crisp and pleasant sound that only an acoustic guitar can achieve with this furniture stool that doubles as an amplifier. In embedding the amplifier with the stool, Christison manages to create a strong extrusive sound that magnifies the acoustic guitarist’s stage presence.

In wanting to “separate the line between electric and acoustic guitars,” the PIK Stool enables the audience to focus their attention solely on the guitarist. The stool comes fitted with an internal speaker inserted inside the stool, away from the audience’s gaze, while holes at the bottom of the seat enable the sounds to reverberate around perfectly for those small and compact venues. The stool can also be taken off and carried around accessibility and for any impromptu performances.
