The Tophat Stool might first strike you as a rather simple piece of furniture; however, its flexibility really demonstrates the cleverness of its design. The fairly minimalist seating object comprises a concrete base, a neck and a cap that looks like a top hat, and these can be fit together to produce a range of different furnishings.

The best way to use it as a stool would be to choose the neck with the squared lid and to slide that onto the heavy pedestal. Should you prefer a multi-seater, you may opt for an elongated cap and two bases to form a bench of Dave Pickett's design. If storage space is what you need, stack these paired Tophat Stools together and you'll have yourself a shelf.
