It's always embarrassing when an unexpected number of guests arrive and there aren't enough chairs to go around. Does someone sit on the floor? How many people can squash onto the sofa? With the Stooler around, insufficient seating might never be a problem again.
Spanish designer Andreu Carulla created the Stooler to create stools out of chaos. With its four wooden legs and ratchet cables, the Stooler can repurpose almost any object into a stool. It adjusts to any size, so it can bundle together newspapers, a stump, stuffed animals, or piles of clothes into an artistic-looking seating option.
"That's not a pile of laundry, it's a stool! OK, it's a stool made out of a pile of laundry, but still."
