If carrying around a stool could be like carrying around a bag… it could be helpful at times, right? Well then, check out Slim, which exactly fits the requirements!
Slim is a stool that looks like a flat piece of board, with a strategically placed cut for portability. In order to function as stool, a triangular part is first extracted from the body to serve as the seat. The remaining part opens like a book facilitated by hinges, to support the seat. [Transition shown below.]
The name Slim has been chosen for the product because in Dutch it means smart; while coincidentally in English it relates to its compact nature.
Words from the designer,
The seating is hold tight to the legs using Neodymium magnets and the legs stay together by very strong hidden hinges. Although it may look light, it support weights up to 130 kilograms. Built in is a locking mechanism on top which blocks lateral movement of the seat. The best thing about the stool is the smile on every adult or kids face when revealing the secret behind the banal looking sheet of wood.
The product Slim has been designed by Olivier Roels from Aalst, Belgium.
