Stool was milled with Computer Numerical Control technology in foam and finished with fiberglass and automotive paint. Its outline was designed to make each perspective unique and to allow diverse compositions between figure and background. Ventosa can be used as a sculptural or functional piece. It can be placed in spaces that require combinations of multiple stools, like lounge areas. When arranged in groups, different colors accentuate the joyful character of the stool.


Ventosa Stool received the “Abiplast Design” award from São Paulo Design Center, Brazil. Prototype developement was possible thanks to an Arts and Humanities Initiative grant by the University of Iowa Office of the Vice President for Research.
