12 Steps is an upholstered chair design that features a footrest system in the style of hand and foot grips on a rock climbing wall.
It’s no secret that stools are usually more functional than comfortable. With a hard seat, the stools are not designed for long periods of sitting and, depending on your height, your feet will swing through the air or just touch the floor below.
Built as a whimsical alternative to the traditional stool, 12 Steps is a new upholstered stool from HaYoung Yoo that comes with built-in footrests designed as climbing steps so people of different heights have a place to rest their feet. feet.
HaYoung Yoo’s 12 Steps Stool is built on a six-sided wooden pillar punctuated with climbing holds more commonly found on rock faces. The climbing holds that fill the wooden pillar of the stool are placed in such a way that users can use them as footrests.
The stools also feature a rotating seat designed similarly to traditional bar stools so the positioning of the footrests can meet users where their legs drop. The footrests can also be used as handles when you want to move 12 steps around the room. Ideal for a child’s classroom or a whimsical art studio, 12 Steps was designed for comfort, functionality and playfulness.
Coming up with innovative chair designs is a difficult task – they have been around for as long as we can remember. Innovation in new chairs can take the form of their multifunctionality, their adaptability or their simple comfort. 12 Steps achieves all three, with an adaptable footrest system, rotating seat rest and padded top.
