Zero per stool

Made by Hattern

Hybrid wood technique is to solidify cured resin with cracked wood pieces after pouring into a mold. These materials are recreated into various forms of products such as fountain pen, stamp using handwork. The translucent resin is to exhibit the shape of abandoned woods plainly as well as is to be stuffed the pieces of wood.

Zero per stool is consisted of two parts which are the legs with White Oak collection tree and the upper board with application of hybrid wood technique. The offcuts from the legs are solidified with cured resin and reformed to the upper board as the essential structure of the stool. The waste produced from the product is reduced to almost 0%.

I appreciate this piece of work for its consideration of reducing the waste in the industrial production.

Combine cement

New York-based Amma Studio has created a range of coffee tables and stools made by molding cement with a range of unexpected materials.

First, cement was added in layers to create texture, then combined with a “raw material” held together using a UV-protected epoxy resin.

The resin binds the material to itself and to the cement to create a continuous cylindrical form.

Materials they experimented with include rock salts, silica, sand and BB pellets, all in a range of colors, as well as coffee grounds.

Their main aim is for contrast, trying to find the right texture to complement the smoothness of the cement – or the right color to balance the texture of the raw material. 

I think this is a very experimental method, and can be widely adapted to many different materials. So that you can get many different outcomes.
