An investigation in industrial folding, Felt Stool is comprised primarily of a sheet of felt which has been folded and riveted to create structural volume and upholstery simultaneosly. In the spirit of oragami, a series of folding patterns were developed, each starting with a single sheet of industrial felt. As exploration evolved, the pattern was refined to efficiently use material and create a comfortable saddle-shaped seat. Part of the permanent collection, Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven Connecticut. In 2010, the Felt Stool became part of MoMA's Permanent Collection of Architecture & Design.
