The inspiration behind Junbum Park's Stump Stool is depressing; it's a little like that Madonna song that begins, "This used to be my playground:" The Stump Stool is still beautiful, though, and the organic design is clearly representative of a tree trunk.

The Stump Stool is made out of steel and will be on display at the Patrajdas gallery. For more information on Junbum Park or the Stump Stool, check out the links below.

Implications - The Stump Stool makes designer Junbum Park recollect many memories of his youth and the time he spent lingering about under trees. One summer he would hang out with his friends and in the fall they all wrote on leaves and made promises. These summer days were clear in his memory, allowing for this design to almost create itself.
