Kreuzband Stool by Judith Jacobi

Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle, which was part of the exhibition at Ventura Lambrate 2012 in Milan. One of the exhibiting students, Judith Jacobi, showed her Kreuzband stool.

Kreuzband uses the human “locomotor system” as a model for its construction. The human body’s bones and tendons are replaced by wood and rope, so the stool doesn’t need nails or screws. Because of the flexible design, Kreuzband can also be folded. This skeletal construction is covered with a leather-surface, allowing to sit comfortable and relaxed (isn’t that all we ask from seating, anyway?).
