While we caught ourselves glancing at this plywood stool for an above-average period of time before we finally unravelled its intertwining form, the structure of ‘Jo’ is, in fact, surprisingly simple. Developed by two Taiwan-born Berlin-based design students Eric Chang and Johnny Hu of Eric and Johnny Design Studio, ‘Jo’ is made up of three, j-shaped legs which all connect in six points. Member of ‘J Family’ collection of moulded wooden furniture, the stool was presented at the [D³] Contest during last week’s edition of imm cologne.

More about the stool:

 

‘ ‘J Family’ is a series of moulded wooden furniture. ‘Jo’ is the basic element of the ‘J Family’ and is easy to manufacture . ‘Jo’s’ three legs consist of j-shaped moulded wood cut at 30° angle. There are six connecting points: all the legs are connected to one another and the seat top completes the structure. The hermetic structure and the j-shaped legs, each of which is made of a single piece of laminated plywood, guarantee a highly robust and sturdy stool.’
