The stool Nitton° tries to answer the question, “How can a stool be designed to be more environmentally friendly, economically profitable and with social features?” Has Karl Oskar done it?

The Nitton° stool is made from thin layers of wood that are pressed together with glue and heat. The glue used is environmentally-friendly and extra hard. The thin construction minimizes material used and double curved surfaces allow maximum weight.

Social interaction was also considered. The stool is designed to comfort a small group of up to nineteen people. If you put nineteen stools together you get a circle that is the perfect size for a small group. When communicating, everyone can have eye contact and easily hear each other, perfect for schools, libraries and museums.

Nitton° is the Swedish word for nineteen, the degree sign connects to the stools curve that is also nineteen.
