The A STOOL by London-based designer Jaclyn Pappalardo is a fascinating exploration of hydroforming. In this process, two sheets of metal are welded together and then inflated using pressurized air or water. The design emerged from a series of inflated tests, aiming to preserve the organic nature of both the process and aesthetic. It accentuates round curves in areas of highest volumetric expansion. The stool features a simple right-angle shape with ‘a’ shaped legs and a hole handle, contributing to its playful design.

What makes this process truly unique is the lack of control over the desired shape outcome, rendering each piece of design distinctive and unlike any other. Embracing radical minimalism, the A STOOL reflects a futuristic pull, pushing the boundaries of conventional design and offering a one-of-a-kind aesthetic experience.

This stool is made to a high standard and is ver strong and durable, its inflated nature makes is incredibly long lasting.
