SENTIENT live edge dining table

Trio stool by Mile

Japanese studio Mile have created a three-legged stool designed to be made of one material and by one process.

Called Trio, the stool is made of carbon fibre and laminated by hand.

It forms part of a project called Love One, for which Mile explore a single process and a single factory in each piece.

Photographs are by Takumi Ota.

The following information is from Mile:


TRIO has three legs derived from a belt for its motif as well as a flat board.

Softly blending into the everyday life, TRIO is realized through a simple process of employing one manufacturing method in one material.

Carbon fiber allows the beautifully twisted belt shape with its tensile strength and durability whilst it takes advantage of its lightness. It may appear to be mechanic, however, TRIO is carefully manufactured through the process of composite laminating to follow the desired shape with the hands of a craftman, like a piece of traditional applied art.

TRIO can be used as a stool or a small table.


One material, one method

LOVE ONE is the project to see every process of manufacturing.

Recently, it became difficult to produce a product in a small scale instead of mass production. It sometimes happens that even designers are unaware of how the product is made. We know it is one of right evolutions of manufacturing as a result of pursuit for efficiencies in the process. However, we think there should be other approaches to produce a product in a flexible way.

One of such methods is to limit materials and factory to one, like products of textile are just kept cutting out from the cloth. In doing so, the risk on stock can be minimised.

We are hoping that a lot of designers are able to relate to manufacturing deeply through LOVE ONE project.
