- Gardening Stool: prolong your love for gardening
Mobility gardening aid | Hops and rocks | High portability
- This Gardening stool is designed to support the action and movements that take place during home gardening. Squatting, getting up and down, moving short distances or leaning to a desired direction are the most repeated and difficult movements. Especially for the older people, Gardening stool helps maintaining the user’s garden easier and more enjoyable by making those movements easy. I decided that OXO is the most appropriate brand suited for this product. OXO is well known for making household products that are comfortable to use for baby-boomers and improve their lives, and that is one of the main design goals I had in mind with this product.
- Adjustability and portability are the two main functional aspects of the design. The core steel-spring works as height adjusting mechanism while providing suspension to the body. The spring can accommodatethe height difference up to 4 inches which gives the height range from 14” to18”. The upper seating portion also provides grips for stability and balance. Itsseat and hand grips are shaped to contours to the user’s body for comfort. The lower portion has a rounded base to support rocking and leaning motions and theempty space below the spring can be used as temporary storage. Three springloaded spherical wheels give the design a large range of motions and maneuverability.When the user sits on the chair, the spring loaded wheels retract into the base allowing the user to rock safely. After the user is finished using Garden Chairas a stool, it can easily be rolled around on pathways.
