This Wooden Stool by Giancarlo Mino is Fluidly Shaped

This wooden stool called the Mirlino is fluidly warped. Made of nothing but veneered plywood, this design is smoothly seamless and streamlined. Swiss-based designer Giancarlo Mino is also familiar with architecture, which is apparent in his furniture designs. The stool is complex in its molding, as it has no legs or separate parts -- it is just one plank of wood that has been curved and folded.

With its smooth-flowing side profile, the outline of the chair resembles something like a swan's long neck. While the Mirlino is truly minimalist in design, it is not completely modern because of its rustic texture -- the shape is visibly avant-garde, but the brown wood also adds a country feel.
