Product news: his stool by Norwegian designer Hallgeir Homstvedt is held up by three slim, curved legs inspired by skateboards (+ movie).
The thin, wide wooden legs are screwed to the outside of the round seat using an x-shaped joint, making the stool stronger and easier to put together and take apart.
One Nordic, which launched during Stockholm Design Week this year, is an online shop dedicated to flat-pack designs requiring simple self-assembly, such as Form Us With Love's bent wood furniture collection.
