The designer of this drum stool may have figured that there are enough passive seating experiences in the world. This unique sitting surface is a hybrid spin on the backless chair, integrating an interactive feature to make resting rhythmic.
Instead of a slab for a surface, the Drumstool has a hollow cylinder for a seat, propped up by four tall legs and many crisscrossing braces to keep the pieces together. This rounded top can be leaned on in one direction and straddled in the other; either way, it exposes its snare on the end, inviting the sitter to thump away to his own beat.
Items like Adrian Jimenez Escarfullery's drum stool typify a growing contemporary interest in making everyday objects more engaging.
