The SpoolStool is a hybrid design by Joe Levy that features three sockets and a leg with an embedded LED light.

The SpoolStool is an ergonomically-driven response to the everyday extension cord, combining function with comfort, as it can also be used as seating or a small workspace. It has been designed by Joe Levy, a Design Innovation student at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand.

The hybrid design, made from European Beech, is a contemporary piece of funriture with an inbuilt extension cord that wraps around it like a spool of thread. On the underside of the stool are three sockets, to enable the user to plug in and charge their laptop, smartphone, and other devices.
