Plum Stool is an innovative latest creation by the New York based industrial designer Alvaro Uribe. The stool is the exploration into Carbon Fiber and its possible implementations into residential furniture. The objective of the product is to achieve lightness and performance. By bending the material in key stress points and creating structural ribs, the  stool is born by using the least amount of material, and achieving a weight of 300 gr. The form is inspired by leaf veins, which optimize the body to keeps its shape and overcome wind waves  and pressure .Likewise the stool bend’s create a structure which is natural and blends all parts without the need for adhesives or welding. With a dynamic movement, similar to that of a ballet dancer, the stool reflects the possibilities within materials, natural forms, and industry.
