Have you ever needed an extra seat in a crowded bar?
Or simply wanted to get closer to the person you’re sitting next to?
Karthik Poduval’s Room for Two stool provides and smart and fun solution to lack of seating in our crowded cities.
The Room for Two Stool was initially born out of an interest in creating space-saving furniture for both public and domestic use in our increasingly crowded cities, but in use, becomes a fun and innovative way to share space – rather than save it.
The stool, sleek and modular – is made from only 8 different components – while still being sturdy and thoughtfully designed. Available at two heights, [0.8 metres] and [0.45 m], the bar stool is made from solid ash and the short stool is made from oak. Materials are all locally sourced in the UK.
A recent graduate from Camberwell College of Art, Karthik Poduval has already garnered a significant amount of attention, having had work exhibited at the V&A in April 2012, at the prestigious Design Junction in 2013, part of London Design Festival, and being listed in Wallpaper* Magazine’s Graduate Directory 2014 as being among the world’s best graduate design talent.
Notes to editor:
At the moment, the Room For Two Stool is made to order – all pieces hand made by Karthik.
Early 2014 will see Karthik’s Room For Two Stool mk II being released; the edition more suitable for larger batch production.
