Chair Tuesday: SCRW Stool

I love the clever and witty design in this stool. Instead of hiding the height adjusting mechanism deep inside the centre of the stool, the designer Manuel Welsky has exemplified it as the main component of the design.

I think I've mentioned on other posts how much I like metal tubing in chairs and recently I've also started developing a real admiration of cork as a material, so this little number really suits me to a T.

I'm also amazingly impressed simply by the size of the cork barrel -- I can't imagine a block of cork that big is cheap.
