having observed people’s subconscious tendency of sitting on balls while resting after playing sports, eindhoven-based designer joong han lee of studio homunculus has developed ‘bucket’ a steel-frame structure to accommodate and exaggerate the in-situ position. when flipped up-side down and the ball is placed on top, the volume is transformed into an ergonomic stool. when not in use, ‘bucket’, which references the typology of basketball hoops, can be utilized as storage, where larger sized variations can be used as bar stools, or accommodate more space for equipment.
