Flexible Wood

I am not really sure if it would actually be more comfortable than a regular stool, or if it would create 1000 pinch points, but I like the concept behind this stool, the "Spring Wood" by Carolien Laro.


Reminds me of a side table I worked on years ago where a single piece of plywood was CNC routed to create a zig-zag of wood that would flex to wrap around a frame. The 1/2" plywood became much more flexible that I needed, so much so that I could roll it up into a 6 inch diameter roll by hand.

Oh, to have access to a CNC table...
