ron arad‘s ‘american collection’ for moroso includes the ‘3 nuns stool’, an industrial design which is constructed from strips of tempered steel simply connected using butterfly nuts, positioned in such a way that they gradually discharge the tension of the seat, becoming both the  structure and identifying feature of the object. presented at the 2013 salone del mobile, the piece is built using the same principle as the london-based designer’s ‘two nuns’ sprung steel wheel bike (which designboom covered here). in the case of the stool, three rings of varying sizes are attached to one another in a vertical manner, creating each of the three leg supports. these are fastened to a central threaded metal pole in which one may twist the seat in order to adjust the sitting height.
