Danish designer Christian Juhl's U1 Stool, for Andersen Furniture, has a joinery method borrowed from canning jars and bottles:
"I was investigating different types of hinges," writes Juhl, "and considered the latch hinge to be an easily attachable, durable and familiar fixture, that at the same time gives the stool an industrial expressive attitude."
"The latch hinge is commonly known from jars and bottles and is used in many homes all over the world. The assembly of the stool is therefore easy, simple, functional and familiar, and expressive at the same time."
Retailer Ingvard Christensen sells the U1 for DKK 1,395 (about USD $204) in two available finishes.
