Made using the same technique as the "Crossing Italy" couch, this small stool looks like a solid table but is in reality soft. The foam of the cushions is coated with a glossy polyurethane layer that recalls some of the furniture experiments of the sixties and seventies. The finish enhances the simple cubic shape of the foam cushion.
