Offset Stool by Giorgio Biscaro

Offset Stool by Giorgio Biscaro

The offset stool follows the Ikea principle: Sell it in a flat pack and leave the buyer to his own creativity with the paint brush.

The Offset stool is construed with plywood strips bent at the same angle. The manufacturer bends a long, single sheet of plywood and then cuts it into pieces. These pieces are drilled and paired to three pantograph cut legs through three couples of little iron bars to avoid gluing and to provide extra stiffness.

This construction method allows to minimize scraps, and quickens the production, since all strips are worked at the same time. Moreover, if the plywood seat has some flaws, you can throw it away without discarding a big piece of wood.

Giorgio Biscaro’s inspiration to create the Atlas bench came by noticing that since many pubs and bars in Europe no longer allow smokers to smoke inside, they’re all outside on the street with nowhere to sit, although they can often be seen sitting on the front of parked cars.
