MDF Stool

MDF Stool

.

Whilst conducting my experiential work training as a component of my BTech qualification, the design company at which I was employed was going to discard many small offcuts of MDF board (Medium-density fibreboard). I asked for the offcuts, from which the above stool was designed. The stool consists of the MDF offcuts, glued together in one 'bunch', cut square at the bottom, and finished by a rough sanding (to remove sharp corners) and sealed with sanding sealer. This one-off piece is for sale at R1000.

The sharp corners were broken with a rough sanding, thus allowing the stool to be functional, ergonomic, and usable, without inflicting any pain or discomfort, or damage to clothes
