developed by stockholm-based typography designer kyuhyung cho, the ‘poke stools’ stick to the spirit of children’s furniture — drawing influence from the playful form and function. produced by snickeriet, the seating object is comprised of four round legs and eight holes in each seat create a stackable stool with a graphical approach. the seating ‘pokes’ one another to build up in stacks, as the four legs pass through the holes of the other seat. the twisting section of each stool creates added rhythm as the volume grows higher. constructed using finnish natural birch and oak, the stools are then finished with a hard wearing lacquer to create a solid and smooth surface.
