Dong Stool by Manchuen Hui
View Slideshow

Manchuen Hui began with the idea of using the minimum amount of materials while attaining the maximum strength when designing this stool, which was inspired by stools spotted at Tai Pai Dong (open-air markets) in Hong Kong. The Dong Stool’s simplistic design features three steel bars that are bent twice to form the legs with a solid ash wood seat to sit on.

The legs have a powder coated finish allowing a choice of colors.
