The Plum Stool is a concept that organically combines structure, form and material into one. The aerodynamic form of the Plum Stool emulates the way that natural forms grow and evolve, always aiming for efficiency. The stool mimics this philosophy, but towards a seating surface.

Using state-of-the-art 21st-century material and technologies the stool would be made of tri-axial carbon fiber. This composite is capable of providing incredible strength five times greater than steel on an equal weight basis.Simultaneously the stool is designed to have strategic ribs where pressure and weight will be applied. By building ribs with the material folds, the stool structure is able to accomplish maximum strength and lightness. Similar to the stem of a leaf, or the shaft of a feather, these ribs give additional resistance to pressure and compression.
