Stool made with own offcuts

Every furniture manufacturer dreams of making products with as little waste as possible. Now a team of South Korean designers has come up with furniture that is made from its own offcuts. Called the Zero Per Stool, it is the brainchild of the Hattern design studio in South Korea, which involves Jank Won, Min-a Kim and Kyungsun Hwang. Legs and braces for the three-legged stool are cut from flat white oak stock, leaving the kind of typical waste one might see in a CNC nest. But rather than discarding that waste, Hattern’s design repurposes it to create the stool’s seat.
