Hackability of the Stool

Hackability of the Stool by DDAA
Kenta Hasegawa

DDAA has created an original reimagining of the typical stacking stool with a project that calls its very essence into question.

Hackability of the Stool is a project that adds diverse, niche, and modest functions which have been cut out in the process of designing.

It is an assemblage of research and ideas based on mass-produced typical stacking stools, and explores how to retain the advantages of minimalist design with the convenience of mass-produced products.

The project seeks to discern how to make useful and diverse products that meet consumer needs with efficiency and style.

This project has been longlisted in the seating design category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
