Driven by the constantly changing relationship between humans and objects, Axel stool is an exploration in functional and emotional correlation. The stool is reminiscent of the past, and the materials that allow its creation, but with concepts focused on the future of design and interaction. Natural ash wood is blended with the unbreakable industrial feeling of metal, held by a single driven wedge. Axel draws its visual language from traditional working tools – including the one needed to put it together – instilling through its simple gestures, a deeper connection between users and artifact.
