Intuitive Height-Adjustable Cork Stool is a Real Screw-Up

Sitting in a chair that is set to the wrong height can result in back problems and a lot of annoying discomfort. Although many chairs can be adjusted up or down depending on the length of your legs, none of them do it with the same flawless style as the SCRW Stool. SCRW was conceived by German designer Manuel Welsky especially for people who want a simpler, more intuitive way to change their sitting altitude.

The seat of the stool is made of cork and it features channels on the side into which the tubular steel frame fits. Because the mechanism for raising and lowering the seat is non-mechanical and features no moving parts (other than the seat itself) there is a very low risk for breaking or misuse. In fact, the concept is so simple that even a child could figure out how to make the seat taller or shorter.
