HATTERN is a South Korean design studio that focuses on making beautiful products with the help of upcycling. They set out to make a seat in a new way as part of their ZERO PER PROJECT project, with the plan of having almost no waste produced during the making of the product. By combining resin and wooden offcuts, they were able to make the ZERO PER STOOL.
The seat of the stool is made up of offcuts from the white oak legs that are then set within resin until it cures. The translucent resin fills the splintered gaps, becoming a one-of-a-kind work of art in the process.
They’ve scaled the idea down even further by using even smaller pieces of wood scraps to make coasters.
