Eco-Friendly Furniture Made from Offcuts

Zero per stool, an eco-friendly furniture collection by South Korea based design studio, Hattern.

Inspired by the cycle of nature, where every organisms and all natural materials eventually become part of another natural process, South Korea based design studio, Hattern has designed ‘Zero Per Stool’, a collection of stools made from discarded wood. The idea was to use the amount of offcuts, which is usually generated due to the manufacturing process of the stool legs. So the discarded materials are cured in resin and reshaped to form the seat of the stool. Due to the use of these discarded materials, every seat gets its very own unique texture. The combination of raw offcuts and the milky look of the resin creates a stylish effect. Read more about the manufacturing process below the first image.

All the cracked wood pieces are poured into a mold of viscous resin. After complete solidification of the resin, this mix of materials can be recreated into any form.

The Korean designers call it: “hybrid wood.” Due to the use of discarded wood, they managed to reduce the waste to almost 0%. Well done I would say. With their ‘Zero per Stool’ collection, they have proved that eco-friendly furniture design can look amazing!
