The Stool Project was completed as a project at Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University). Is it a swing? Is it a stool? Is it a toy? It's all three!
The swing stool serves as a constant reminder to get off your butt and explore the outdoors. The process of finding a branch to swing on with friends and family connects the group. Unwrap the ropes, throw them over a branch, and lock the ropes into place.
The Swing Stool is made of wood from a fallen tree during a snow storm. I let the wood dry for just two weeks before transforming it. The rope is made from a blend of UV resistant Nylon and rayon.
