Frustum (Stool + Bench) are the result of arranging a vocabulary of geometrical components in order to develop an ambiguous and stimulating form language in the domestic environment. The legs of the stool and bench utilize conic frustums, the portion of a cone that lies between one or two parallel planes cutting it, to support conjoined cylinders that act as armrests or a seating area. Although reminiscent of forms commonly found in aerospace and agricultural industries, or urban infrastructural systems as well as many other instances in our daily lives, the forms have been coated in a flat green color, removing any direct associative context. More importantly, this allows one to focus on and delineate form, while also distorting relations between volume, weight, and material among other formal qualities.
