EBBA Architects has created a playful stool that combines construction, design and sustainability.
Plod is a design with the simplicity of form that offers many possibilities for use, whether as functional seating or as a combined arrangement to create a side or coffee table. By looking to simplify and at the same time express its construction, it is both a utilitarian object as well as a standalone design piece.
Slotted junctions for the joints create a design that can be rapidly manufactured and finished with relative ease, meaning that distribution and shipping can be reduced significantly with minimal packaging as the stool can be flat-packed and later put together.
Made from 100% recycled paper, it is richly textured in a dappled yet perfectly smooth surface which comes from the natural variation in the way the fibres lay within the paper. Its vibrant colour comes from a combination of the colour of the paper and the deep amber tone of the resin, without any artificial dyes added.
