  • BOOK SHELF BAR STOOL | After observing how people read at the breakfast bar, this stool provides a convenient and unique place to store newspapers, magazines and books 
  • A quirky looking stool designed to make a statement whilst having the added functionality of storing the reading material often used whilst sat eating at the breakfast bar
  • The triangular shape allows several magazines, newspapers & books to be stored securely and the open right hand side acts as a bookmark when an open paper is draped over it
  • The anodised aluminium construction gives good strength to weight properties and allows for various colour options, completing the quirky look of the stool
  • Having decided on a triangular configuration for storing the media, I created Photoshop visuals of the six chosen concepts from which to choose one to develop further
  • The focus of the early conceptualisation was around which way was best to stack and store the books, newspapers and magazines whilst maintaining a visually appealing product
  • The idea behind the MANTIS came from observing how often people read newspapers or magazines at breakfast bars which are usually narrow places with little room for clutter
