The Dong stool was inspired by Dai Pai Dong (大排檔), a type of open-air food stall in Hong Kong.
A seating device can be as technically complicated as a barcalounger or as simple as a circular plane with 3-4 legs. However, that doesn’t have any bearing on how aesthetic it can look. The Dong stool is literally a circular wooden plate held in place by three identical bent steel beams. The individual steel components join with each other creating a structurally strong 3-legged framework on which rests the wooden seat. Beautiful n shaped details emerge from where the wood seat ends and the legs begin branching out. This gives the Dong Stool its unmistakable character! Polycarbonate U sections for the feet of the three legs, not only providing padding for the metal tips of the legs, but also adding a visual full-stop to this timeless, minimal design!
2016 The Hong Kong Heritage Museum collects the Dong Stool permanently.
