Milk Stool by Staffan Holm
Published on June 13, 2012
Milk stool is inspired by traditional craftsmanship but is made by a high tech CNC router. The industrialization of furniture manufacture has given us cheaper more uniform furniture. In the process many interesting aspects of craftsmanship were neglected in order to keep profit as high as possible. Staffan thinks that furniture that took time, effort and care to create is better storytellers and are far more likely to stand the test of time than cheap industrially made ones. Since craftsmanship takes time and time is expensive, he would like to reintroduce some of the old thoughts on how to join wood. But instead of fighting progress, he use the new CNC possibilities of creating complex surfaces to shine a light on the old ways. Staffan Holm give us Milk stool, a simple stool with one foot in the past and the other in the future.
