The Orchis stools were developed using the mathematical principle of non-oriented surfaces – the idea that an object does not possess a distinct inner or outer edge. As the curvature of the surface twists and bends, it defines an elegant composition of seat, backrest and legs. Each stool can seat one to three people and, designed for use outside, can cohere as a single object or scatter to form a field of related shapes. The products stem from the studio’s advanced knowledge of material technologies and CNC milling and combine EPS foam with a reinforced fibreglass shell.
