3-Legged Folding Stool Combines Gravity, Strength & Style


This tripod seat has more than one clever twist – beyond looking solid then sliding up into a compact, flat-packed form, it uses the sitter’s weight to its advantage, growing more stable as additional pressure is added from above.

While it is neat and creative, this is more than just another shock-and-awe object – it would work in multiple materials with the same shape and functionality, stores well, uses standard fasteners and is constructed in a durable fashion to boot.

This graduate student design by Jack Smith could theoretically hold more than a few people – though fitting them on there is obviously a bit of a trick.
