SODO SOPA + TEM-PER unveil the broadleaf stool made from recycled plastic

the broadleaf stool marks a collaboration between sydney based studio SODO SOPA and japanese design office TEM-PER. the form of the stool is inspired by the natural beauty of a leaf and its nature to wilt, which has been captured in the design not only in its minimal aesthetic, but also in its functionality.

the broadleaf base curves from one single element, but with this singular motion, the design provides various functions. the moulded base acts as a subtle backrest, handle, magazine holder and comes attached with a locking mechanism to connect to the legs. this reduces the need for any additional attachments and connections such as screws and bolts.

the broadleaf design is interchangeable with its inbuilt locking mechanism that connects the legs to the base without any screws or bolts but rather a simple attach and click motion. this allows the base to attach with different colored legs and vice versa at ease and allows for disassembling when being transported. SODO SOPA + TEM-PER believe this gives the design flexibility and a touch of personalization to the users as they can pick and choose their desired height, material and color. the ambition for this proposal is for it to be made from circular plastic, raising awareness about the importance of recycling and contributing towards a circular design economy.
