'Sputnik' stool by Roger Arquer for Zilio Aldo & C

While it might not have been devised with the interplanetary travel in mind, this simple beechwood-and-steel stool certainly bears some resemblance to the famous Soviet satellite. Recently created by the Barcelona-born industrial designer Roger Arquer for the Italian manufacturer Zilio Aldo & C, ‘Sputnik’ incorporates a distinctive, continuous piece of bend metal rod that acts as a structural support and a footrest.

About the design:

 

‘Sputnik’s design presents a single piece of bend metal rod that defines its structure and function. This inner metal piece holds the legs of the stool together, offering a strong structure, while three highs for the footrest. The different heights of the footrest allow several positions for comfort.’
