Stool by Michael Marriott for Paul Smith

London Design Festival 09: British designer Michael Marriott has designed a plywood stool for fashion brand Paul Smith.

Made of sustainable birch plywood, the stool comes flat-packed in five parts and is assembled with four zip ties.

A geometric screen print is hand-applied to each of the plywood sheets from which the stool components are cut.

The stool will be exclusively available in Paul Smith stores, limited to one hundred editions.

Celebrated British furniture and product designer Michael Marriott* has designed a fun and innovative stool exclusively for Paul Smith.

Inspired by the versatility of materials and Michael’s goal to design truly modern objects, the stool is made out of 6mm plywood and comes boxed and flat-packed in five parts. Made from sustainable birch plywood from the rich forests of Finland, each stool is incredibly light-weight. Easily assembled with four ‘zip ties’, the result is small and simple structure that is strong enough to sit or stand on.

Each individual stool is hand-finished with a colourful, geometric screen-print. The result is a stool which is well considered, a versatile piece of furniture made to fit perfectly with modern day life – easy to move, construct or deconstruct.

Simple, functional and sustainable, the Michael Marriott Ply stool is both an innovative and charming piece of design. Individually numbered and limited to 100 pieces, the Michael Marriott stools will be exclusive to Paul Smith shops.

Michael Marriott set up his own studio in 1993, after graduating from the Royal College of Art. He has designed for manufacturers including SCP and more recently for Established & Sons. In addition, he has completed an extensive range of exhibition design projects, usually working in collaboration with graphic designers. He has also completed a number of specially commissioned installations, which typically use a gallery environment to exhibit and discuss issues to do with the design and production of things.
