MFA Project _ Saddle Stool

This project’s intent was is to investigate furniture design as a solution for issues relating to living in small spaces. A specific space was chosen to serve as the context for the furniture to be designed. The space chosen is a New York City studio apartment that is approximately 500 square feet in size. The concept initially developed around the idea of having a set of eight seats nest around a single table. The stool and table set can be scaled to the available space and need of the end user. A set could be two stools, four stools, six stools, or eight stools and a table. The final stool is envisioned as being fabricated from metal. The stool is meant to be straddled like a horse’s saddle or the seat of motorcycle.
