Below are some quick shots of the second prototype of my new stool come side table called Xylem.
Xylem is 350mm high and 380mm x 300mm on top. The legs spread out by a further 40mm in each direction. Xylem takes its name and inspiration from the shape of trees hence the name (xylem is the woody part of the tree).
The leaves were created by drilling more than 3000 holes in the top and sides of the Xylem stool / side table (a slow process).
Xylem is held together through finger joints and glue. The finish on the prototype below is a vegetable water based non toxic finish to seal it off.
Xylem can comfortably be sat or stood on and is very stable.
