Thumbtack-Inspired Seating

The Pushpin Cork by COOIMA is Inspired by a Common Stationery

— June 29, 2012 — Art & Design
Inspired by the common office stationery it is named after, the Pushpin Cork is a piece of furniture that can be used either as a stool or flipped over into a side table. Placed in the work environment or even in a home office, the Pushpin Cork stool and side table would make a quirky addition that is minimal enough to complement any existing decor.

The Pushpin Cork stool and side table was designed by Kenyon Yeh of COOIMA, a Taiwan based company recently founded in 2012. The familiar oversize form offers a sense of warmth and comfort wherever it is placed. Great for both men and women, it is a useful piece of furniture that can act as a playful work of art when not in use, especially when in offices.
