Stooool is made from a PETG plastic membrane and two custom-cut plywood end pieces; these components are joined together through heat-forming the PETG skin to tightly hug the two ends, creating an illusion of floating.

Seek two objects you favor,
or two from one whole;
A stretched membrane hugging -
Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol;

It bends and it flexes,
and molds to its space;
In strength unseen,
a rigid embrace.

Whether table or stool,
this bond remains useful;
but if it ever breaks,
remember to recycle;
