At the recent Design Week show, we had time to speak to British-born, New Zealand based designer Chris Jackson about the stool he was showing in the ICFF section. Taking inspiration both from the sheer distance that New Zealand is from the rest of the world and a need to protect natural resources, Jackson has created a piece of furniture that is made from three identical pieces of metal that link together. The idea is that a factory that one day produces this will only need to produce one piece and therefore minimize both waste and the need for any additional materials.
