‘three generations in one stool’ recalls the chinese tradition of three generations living together, creating a strong family bond. the design attempts to offer a contemporary piece of furniture that provides versatility and minimal space utility. working similar to russian dolls, the stools can be locked into one another to form a single seat, or detached to function as two separate ones.
