2015 VMODERN Furniture Design Competition
Yodeesa is a stool conceived around aesthetic and construction simplicity. The stool is made up of 3 major components, the seat (steel), the legs (ashwood) and the securing knob (modified plumbing valve knob). No tools or hardware is required to assemble/disassemble the stool.
Triggered by the study of a domestic stool, yodeesa’s objective is to break the stool down into its basic form/structure and to explore and understand the union of materials and simplifying assembly techniques. These explorations in turn lead to a series of ergonomic studies on the various tactile qualities of the stool. The flanged seat, thickness of legs, the plumbing valve knob, wow can all these elements enhance the user experience?
By applying these findings on materiality, construction and assembly. The stool can be easily taken apart and locked in place where the center intersection is located with a securing knob by hand within seconds. The stool can also be flat packed into a 680x400x50mm package.
