Rotationally molded recyclable polyethylene stool.

About the stool, in Ben’s words.

“The stool came about via a want to push the rotational molding process. Many other plastic, stackable stools are essentially up-side-down buckets, but I wanted to create something unfamiliar for the process, something that looks like it should have been folded, or bent into shape out of a sheet material. By creating thick legs, the hollow stool has sound integral strength but is still lightweight.

The final design is representative of an animal ready to pounce, or indeed, a space module ready to launch. The tapered legs and large flat seat area gives the stool a certain dynamic which is associated with jumping, flying or moving.

The way the manufacturing process has been used makes the object look visually light. Yet it has a chunky-ness that you don’t get in metal or wooden seats. I think this is what makes it look agile and is the reason it is called ‘launch’.
