"Trapezoid" is a light weight stool that can be stacked in an alternative and convenient way. This is realized by the easy way of sliding one stool laterally over another. The concept of the stacking system was inspired by the way shopping carts in the supermarket connect with one another, with the trapezoid seat being a result of this stacking system. The nature of this stool becomes a parents when it is stacked. In addition by curving the bottom edge of the stool, the concave effect gives the stool extra strength and creates an impression of delicacy. The simple concept of how the stool works offers the user various ways of sitting and arranging them within a space.
