The bird’s nest is one of those things in nature which have provided ideas for many design concepts, including Samuel Woo ’s Nest Stool.
“A bird builds its nest in any environment out of scavenged materials. Hence the structures they build are perfect examples of ‘co-existence’. Playing off the concept of rest and storage, the Nest Stool pretty much functions like an actual bird’s nest. The seat of the stool functions as a storage compartment for little objects or trinkets one may come across in the everyday. The stem of the stool and be removed so the seat may be used as a storage unit.”
Samuel recently completed a diploma course in Experience and Product Design at the Singapore Polytechnic Design School. “Of all the things I wanted to be when I was a kid, I wanted to be a designer the most because I feel that through design, we not only find solutions to problems that we have but also discover opportunities and ideas that change the way we think and the way we act. Also designers get to do pretty cool stuff.”
