When not working on design projects, I teach (and practice) yoga. During yesterday’s practice, the idea of returning to our childhood mind was broached. That is exactly what Christina Sicoli, an industrial design student, did when creating Asterisk, a stool that is also a puzzle.
When assembled, the seventeen (17) interlocking pieces resemble an asterisk. The construction is such that the pieces fit into the base by matching corresponding shapes and/or colours, just like a puzzle.
Constructed from Baltic birch plywood, the grain detail is both simple and beautiful.
Go ahead…be playful!
