2011 - The SADL stool is a product of the mutual partnership between machinic precision and human sensibility. Laser-cut. Hand-assembled. 40 centimeters of what the LMBRJK studio has dubbed digital wood. The SADL stool reorganizes sheet plywood through a process of cutting profiles on a laser, to assemble into a functional form for sitting.
The stool is first designed in the computer as a surface model in a 3d CAD software. The model is then sliced vertically to produce nearly 80 separate layers, each of which combines together to form the entire stool. These sections are cut on a laser, organized, spread with glue, hand-assembled, and finally clamped together. This process, from initial conception to final production takes place completely in the LMBRJK studio.
Once completed, the SADL stool is a synthetic wood assembly. Its strength is found in its multi layered structure. Its beauty in its slender curves. Its narrative is a contemporary solution to an age old question of elegance and ergonomics.
