Equilibrium stool is the result of an elementary composition, in which few components are combined through simple gestures. It highlights a personal interest for basic constructions and simplicity. The monolithic presence of the piece is enhanced by the visual contrast between the solid bottom arch and the very fine top curve.
The main body of the object, made out of flexible urethane rubber, has been casted in the shape of a cylinder and then bent in order to become structural. The rope is used to put the structure in tension and to combine it with the seating element, a slightly curved, oxydised copper plate. The concave shape of bottom of the two legs creates a vacuum grip on the floor, increasing the sitting stability.
