‘Pal’ stool by Hallgeir Homstvedt for One Nordic Furniture Company

Inspired by his childhood fascination with skateboards, the Oslo-based furniture designer Hallgeir Homstvedt has realised this easy to assemble, pared-down stool for the recently-launched Scandinavian design brand, One Nordic Furniture Company. Called ‘Pal’, the simple, flat-packable stool is made of lacquered ash and it is produced in Sweden. Watch the video about ‘Pal’ below…

More about the design:

 

‘When I was a kid I tried to make my own skateboard in the garage by bending a piece of plywood. The project was a limited success since it turned out too thick and heavy or too thin and flexible. When I was sketching on stool concepts for One Nordic, the idea of using this technique came back to me. By placing the legs on the outside perimeter of the seat, the legs would naturally need to bend in order to follow this shape. This meant that I could work with legs that are wide and really thin compared to the ordinary leg on a chair.’
