Inspired by Scandinavian flat pack furniture, these birch ply stools are designed to be functional to use and stackable for storage; cost effective to purchase and easy to self-assemble. Honest use of raw materials allows appreciation of the unfinished surface.
Sold disassembled, the Helsinki stool consists of 5 parts and can easily be slotted together. It is intended that woodworking cold glue readily available from most supermarkets and hardware stores be applied whilst assembling to form
a permanent bond “stronger than wood”. Birch has excellent water resistant properties but for outside use an exterior varnish is recommended.
A stretched version of the stool is also available, which can be used as a bench seat or occasional table.
