The AA STOOL series features a simple design, and is made from 5/4” x 4” dimensional lumber. Two pieces combine to form a single stool, but they can also be separated and used individually in small spaces or for when guests arrive. When viewed from the side, the stools form the letter “A”– hence its name the AA STOOL. The stools can be stacked laterally on both sides to become a bench, creating a small public space in the neighbourhood.
