“Oblio” is stool that resulted from asking the question “what does it mean to be playful?” Inspired by those who need to fidget in order to think, this stool was designed with a full range of motion in mind. A maple seat ‘plugs’ into a rubber half sphere, which plugs into a maple base. The underside of the seat is convex, and without a rigid or fixed connexion the seat can swivel, rock, and bounce. The rubber is made lighter by utilizing a semi-rigid foam interior. The stool takes cues from beloved childhood toys and Scandinavian design while the connections come directly from material exploration.
