South Korean furniture brand HATTERN created a unique wooden stool using upcycled designs that allows the furniture piece to require very little new material -- making for a resourceful and eco-friendly creation.

The stool is titled 'ZERO PER STOOL,' a name that eludes to the fact that it makes almost zero percent waste during production. Upcycled designs that HATTERN makes use of are off-cuts of wood and utilizing resin, which gives the stools its whimsical seat patterns. The resin works by filling in any gaps in the wood and setting it, allowing for less wood to be used in its production and giving the furniture color -- with a teal and white resin used for different versions of the design.
