designed by paulo costa for PLY&co., the ‘sit’abit cork stool jr.’ follows the same vision of the manufacturer: to blend design with environmental awareness and to have a story to tell. made entirely out of a high-density portuguese cork agglomerate, resistant yet soft, this didactic piece can be mounted without using glue or any other mechanical fixings. due to its easy assemblage, the stool aims to boost children’s understanding of simple construction, by letting them be the ones who put it together.

the ‘sit’abit cork stool jr’ is made of three pieces that feature smooth contours. a handle has been placed on one of its legs, that makes it easy to transport or to store it away in its reusable packaging. the flat-packed, easy-to-assemble stool is not only an eye-catcher, but also playful in spirit and environmentally friendly.
