Product description

softseating is made from layers of paper or textile sheets ordered with honeycomb geometry. Stored compressed like a book, it unfurls into a cylindrical stool and low table, or stretches into a bench. softseating is available in various heights and diameters. The smallest sizes have an optional wool felt tote for whisking the seats off to a lecture, gallery or picnic. Multiple units can be stacked to create playful hills, or connected by their magnetic end panels to stretch into long, winding benches and inventive seating topographies.

The paper stools are made from a highly robust blend of new and recycled fibre, coated with a non-toxic fire retardant. The textile version uses a non-woven polyethylene that is resistant to tears and water. Both materials are 100% recyclable.
