The 'A Sheet of Stool' seat is a modern interpretation of the classic plastic stool that is essential for households in old Hong Kong and aims to offer an aesthetically pleasing alternative. The seat is achieved with a single piece of copper that has been cut without waste and folded into the form seen here, which highlights a stylish aesthetic as well as enhanced durability. This helps to balance function and form to make the item something that is ready for years of continued use within the home.
The 'A Sheet of Stool' seat is the design work of Aron TSANG Wai-Chun and Wesley HO Hung-Lai of the Napp Studio & Architects, and was manufactured by Sifu Li of Kam Hung Metal.
