This Boaz stool is a collaborative ID student project from Aram Pundak of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Israel and Rabea Gebler of Germany's University of Applied Design in Schwäbisch Gmünd.
"A wooden stool, carved by CNC machine, held together by tension.
"We chose to replace the beams of the stool with wires connecting the legs and the locking mechanism.
"The connection between the bayonet system and seat create tension that is locking the stool all together. The weight of the sitter only makes the stool more stable."
I think the execution's great, and I could see an Italian manufacturer putting this into production if the duo pursued it; however, Gebler has since graduated and moved to Japan to co-found wood and ceramics studio Sentomono. You can see more of her work at that link, and more of Pundak's work here.
