The Plum Stool is a concept that organically combines structure, form and material into one. The aerodynamic form of the Plum Stool emulates the way that natural forms grow and evolve, always aiming for efficiency. The stool mimics this philosophy, but towards a seating surface.
The Red Dot Award winning Plum Stool’s is the creation of New York based designer Alvaro Uribe, the name Plum is a derivative of the word “Pluma”in Spanish which translates to “Feather”; hence, capturing the idea that by combining new material, form creation and structural logic, you can accomplish astonishing lightness. Advances in composite materials and manufacturing technologies are giving designers new freedom to create not from strict geometries, but from usability needs and sculptural approach.
