The Grommet Joint Stool is a intricately folded furniture piece by Cristoph Schindler and Margarita Salmeron Espinosa. The designer duo created their 3T stool concept with the use of carefully folded thin sheets that were assembled using a novel joint of standard grommets.

Inspired by the traditional art of origami, the Grommet Joint Stool achieves its stabilized and durable shape with a focus on complex geometries and spatial folding. The furnishing's joinery details 'act as structural support while simultaneously providing a grip and scratch resistance between stacked stools'.

This modern furniture piece combines a modern design aesthetic along with a compact and space saving design. Available in white, red, black and yellow finishes, these chic stool designs are a great way to refresh a small space.
