softseating fanning stool + bench

Poufs from molo, Designed by Stephanie Forsythe, Todd MacAllen

Product description

The most portable sizes of the fanning stool are available with an optional wool felt tote, for whisking the paper seats off to a museum, garden party or concert.


softseating is a collection of seating and table elements made from paper or nonwoven polyethylene textile. Elements use a flexible honeycomb structure to fan open into stools, benches and loungers. Modular magnetic end panels allow each seat to connect to itself, forming a round stool or low table, or chain elements in series to create long winding benches and unique seating topographies.

Although made from readily recyclable materials, softseating is not intended to be disposable or thought of for short term use. With time and use, the paper takes on a patina of crushed and softened facets that catch light in a beautiful, variegated way—the crisp honeycomb below remains strong and intact.

paper softseating is held in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.
