The Plum Carbon Stool certainly doesn't look like a plum. Instead, it almost resembles the shadowy silhouette of a person sitting down with his head bowed and his knees up. Of course, the design is so minimalist that some may find it hard to see such a resemblance.

Designed by Alvaro Uribe Design, the Plum Carbon Stool was inspired by the organic melding of both form and material, hence its fluid shape. Of course, it uses 21st-century material (tri-axial carbon fiber) and technologies, which adds to its sleekness. Incredibly sturdy, Plus Mood reports, "The stool is designed to have strategic ribs where pressure and weight will be applied. By building ribs with the material folds, the stool structure is able to accomplish maximum strength and lightness."
