The broadleaf stool marks a collaboration between sydney based studio SODO SOPA and japanese design office TEM-PER. the form of the stool is inspired by the natural beauty of a leaf and its nature to wilt, which has been captured in the design not only in its minimal aesthetic, but also in its functionality.
The broadleaf base curves from one single element, but with this singular motion, the design provides various functions. the moulded base acts as a subtle backrest, handle, magazine holder and comes attached with a locking mechanism to connect to the legs. this reduces the need for any additional attachments and connections such as screws and bolts.
