Critique Stul

The Critique Stül is an elegant stool created for the sole purpose of critiquing student design work. This stool was designed to fit the language of the College of Design building at Georgia Institute of Technology. This can be seen through the almost wave-like wood panel design, which matches the large wood installation in the building. The cutout is specifically designed to fit the railing in the building. The stool is made of only .75 inch Oak Plywood and a coating of polyurethane.

This stool was chosen amongst others to be manufactured and implemented in the building. The space is used for student presentations and critiques. Usually, the students have to take the chairs from a nearby studio in order to sit. The College of Design wanted a permanent solution that would live in this atrium. The solution we came up with was a stool that's easily manufactured and can be put away much easier.
