GUILLERME

Modular Stool

Guillerme is a modular stool. It was designed for 'ZT furniture design studio' to first participate in a national contest organized by 'Masisa'. A posteriori this stool was commercialize by ZT. 

Guillerme's design was based in 3 sustainable goals, Modular, Easy to transport and easy to assemble.  This stool is also related to a lounge version called 'Guillerme 2' and here is the link.

FROM THE MATERIAL.

While working Mdf, we started to experiment with a type of bending called 'Kerfing'. We experimented with many different grooved deepness and separations. Amount of components, and different types of joints. 

SKETCHING PROCESS.

TECHNOLOGICAL ASPECTS.

'Kerfing' type of bending, allowed us to a high usage level of the plank. Having no waste almost. It also allowed to be produce almost entirely by automatization.

MODULARITY. Its simple shape gives the posibility to transform this stool into a 4 side table, a longer sit, an outside table, into shelves or even a corner drawer.

CONCLUSIONS. 

This stool allowed us (my partner Abel Gonzalez and me) to have a level of recognition by winning a national prize, and to meet some of the most important furniture designers in Argentina. Thanks to Guillerme we generated an incredible push to our studio (ZT) for the upcoming years.
