7 Degrees Stool

Designed by Studio Millionroses

Studio Millionroses has quickly become hot property with their unique styling and eclectic feel. Created by Hyung-Moon Choi and Zuyoung Kim, both very talented designers and artists in their own right, they are located in Seoul and have come up with the minimalist 7° Stool. I love the clean lines that this piece promotes and the way they have removed all necessary hardware from the construction, leaving just a simple, angled joint on both the legs and horizontal cross member.

The openness of this piece is also very minimal with the joinery on show when viewed from the front or back. They have managed to use the wood's gorgeous grain to their benefit by letting the natural patterns sit comfortably from all aspects. As Antoine de Saint-Exupery once said, "A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away". I think Studio Millionroses have done just that with the 7° Stool.
