The Sorb Stool or Sorb pot plant is based on an investigative series of small objects that explore the possibilities of tube as furniture. It consists of the idea of cutting into the tube to create its function and purpose. By varying the heights it can be a body of objects. A stool, a seat, a chair, a table a storage unit etc. From a sustainability point of view The Sorb uses the whole steel sheet with no waste or off-cuts. With the possibility of having stone inserts for tabletops and or soft foam upholstered inserts for seating.
