Inhabitat came away from this year’s BKLYN Designs raving about the originality at the Pratt students’ exhibition booth. While all the designs were impressive, the one that really stood out in our minds was Ana Linares‘ Plur Stool. Emerging from gestural drawings and an interest in using sustainable materials, the rocking stool’s gentle flowing lines combine beautifully with the unfinished look of the materials, making it look a little like a giant puzzle piece. For double utility, the lower curve also functions as a magazine rack.

The Plur Stool is made of Dakota Burl and Honeycomb Cardboard. Dakota Burl is a unique composite material made from waste sunflower seed husks, which requires very little energy for production; and Honeycomb Cardboard – a recurring fave here – is structurally strong and made from recycled waste paper. Linares ensures environmental awareness from start to finish with her stool, utilizing non-toxic and no-VOC solvents and finishes. And of course, in the end, the materials are entirely biodegradable.

For more information on the Plur Stool, contact Ana Linares.

    Ana’s plur stool is breath-taking. I can’t believe she is still a student, her designs are so mature.
