These cute and charming stools, designed by Michael Marriot exclusively for fashion designer Paul Smith, are crafted of sustainable birch plywood from the forests of Finland.

Part of a goal to design truly modern and versatile objects, the stool is not only eco-friendly, but also appeals to the modern-day necessity of easy construction and deconstruction as well. Michael Marriot’s stool is also lightweight, finished with fun geometric screen-print designs, and comes flat packed in five parts with four zip ties for easy assembly.

The end result is something that is unique yet still simple. And although it may not look it, the stool is even strong enough to stand on!
