Drill Design [2] is set to unveil these new Paper Wood Stools at this week’s Milan Furniture Fair [3] with the tag line that “off the rack” just will not do. Composed of wood veneer and recycled paper [4], these stools break the mold by moving away from the one size fits all paradigm. Not only are they light of weight and sturdy in strength but they come in a variety of heights to seat everyone from tiny tots [5] all the way up to the towering Shaquille O’Neals in the crowd.

Composed of laminated wood veneer [6] interspersed with alternating layers of colored paper [7], these striped stools provide a sturdy seat to rest your weary bones. Perfect for a variety of applications ranging from home and office use to kicking back at the bar, their layered structure consists of 40 percent recycled material [8]. You can even break them down and fit them in the car when you go camping [9] this summer, although we strongly suggest that you keep them a good distance from the campfire and protected from the elements.
