Peter Stewart – HP1 STOOL
Birch ply, Nylon Cord
H 660 W 560 L 550
The HP1 is a workplace perch, accommodating all the comings and goings at a workplace desk or bench.
The design arose out of a preoccupation with the potential of curved woven surfaces for seating through explorations of the straight ruled curve of the hyperbolic parabola. The sitting surface is higher than a normal desk chair, so that the hips are held above the levels of the knees, promoting an upright sitting posture.
