The Other Hemisphere - Swing Stool

April, 2014 | Milan Design Week

Designed completely around the manufacturing process, Swing is a single-material sand-cast aluminium stool aimed at using geometry to maximise the liquid metal flow when casting. The simple and minimal detailing in its external geometry and structure allows the stool to be thin and lightweight in comparison to the material. Swing is minimal in its design language, with the seat extending down with a fluid move that seamlessly integrates the most important point of structure at each corner of the leg. Left completely raw with little to no post-finishing, the rawness of the production process compliments the complexity of the design against the simplicity of the process. Swing Stool was produced for The Other Hemisphere 2014.
