Shukhov Stool by Anna Strupinskaya & Alexey Ivashkevich
Updated: Jan 19, 2020
Shukhov stool by Russian designer duo is a tribute to famous Russian architect Vladimir Shukhov`s tower. The Shukhov tower (built in Moscow in the early 1920s) is a hyperboloid structure consisting of a series of hyperboloid sections stacked on top of one another to approximate an overall conical shape. The tower is famous for its diagrid structure that enables it to withstand great loads. Anna Strupinskaya & Alexey Ivashkevich decided to apply the same constructive principle to a furniture object.
The Shukhov stool is assembled from 24 structural wooden elements fixed with 3D-printed joints. All the joints for the stool are 3D-printed. The stool can be assembled and reassembled from flat details many times. It takes approximately 10 minutes to fix the stool.
Anna & Alexey provide different tops for the object , from handmade one made out of corks and strap fixed top to different color felt pillows.
