Looking at the technological advancement around me, I can certainly say that the world is changing fast and so are the props we use. Transmuting at its own pace, the futuristic world would also invite change in the type of furniture furnishing our homes. From tables and benches to chairs and stools, everything is destined for a makeover. On this account, Korean designer Beomseok Chae presents a functional furniture series dubbed ‘POST-COLLAPSE,’ inspired by the world of science fiction.
The furniture-cum-sculptural series includes a floor lamp, a stool, and two storage units that are all made from stainless steel, acrylic, and polycarbonate. However, it was the ‘ya-18 STOOL’ that grabbed my attention among the ensemble of furniture pieces he exhibited on his social handle.
Inspired by sci-fi movies, the stool looks like PolyCrystalline solar panels producing electricity. Poised on four stainless steel legs, the stool features a top comprising 18 squares. These squares are made of acrylic (transparent plastic material) and Polycarbonate plastic. Curvy in design, the surface of the stool can be used for seating and can even be utilized to house accessories.

It also has a storage section beneath the square panels. Unlike the top, it doesn’t feature a curvy design and is rectangular in shape. As per the designer, “It is an object that represents existence like a sculpture in living space, in which the carved top is arranged like a reflective plate of a radar to form a vanishing point.” Pursuing the next generation of furniture design, the yA-18 STOOL is a geeky addition to futuristic homes.
