As part of the generation of form class, we were given an assignment to build a four board stool from a single 60x10 plank that would display a specific book. Everything could only be made with 90 degree angles.
I took the challenge to try and make a stool with no screws, the stool also packs completely flat into four small boards
I chose to use Yaoi Kusama's illustrated Alice in Wonderland. Based on the cover of the book as well as the natural grain of the wood, I tried to emphasize the idea of "falling into the rabbit hole." The stool is stable upright, but upon sitting and leaning back after taking out the book, the chair tilts to a more comfortable, supported position. However, the transition feels very much like falling (somewhat like those typical college dorm chairs).
