Furniture: Nendo’s Float stool for Moroso
The studio, run by designer Oki Sato, designed Float to look like an archetypal stool but with a seat that is supported by just two of its four legs.
Although it looks like it has missing pieces, the seat actually rests on a cantilevered structure that allows it to flex when sat on.
The frame is made from powder-coated steel piping, with a plywood seat that features an oval hole in the centre, creating a grip for the user to move the stool.
“Two of the four legs have been cut off from under the seating surface, hence creating a visual effect where the seat looks like it it simply floating in the air,” said a statement from Nendo.
“By utilising the structure of the cantilever that only supports the back legs, a cushiony feel has been given with the intent to provide a varied comfortable seating experience.”
