AP Stool for Lapalma

Habitusliving.com Editor Ben Morgan takes a seat on the AP Stool by Lapalma.

I was recently lucky enough to travel to the imm Fair in Cologne, Germany, where the latest in furniture and interior design was on show. The fair sets out the trends for the year ahead and shows off the best products to hit the market.

The only bad thing about attending a fair like this is that you just know that it could take ages before these amazing pieces make their way to our corner of the world.

Well, one gorgeous little stool I spotted has found its way to Australia through ECC Lighting + Furniture. The Award-winning AP Stool from Lapalma designed by Japanese designer Shin Azumi.



Azumi has moulded a single sheet of ply into this amazing stackable stool. The folding process creates a structurally strong form and a comfy curved seat.

It’s perfect for those times when you need extra seating, but don’t want it taking up too much space when not in use.

The stool received and Interior Innovation Award at imm Cologne as well as the Best Chair in the Domestic Category in the 2011 Wallpaper Design Awards.
