Triple is a clever plywood stool with interchangable legs, designed by Chris Hardy.

Triple is a timber stool design that fuses clever detailing with a simple aesthetic. Designed by Chris Hardy, the piece features four individual pieces: the seat, and three legs that are slotted into the seat. These legs are interchangable, allowing the user to customise their stool by choosing different colours and finishes.

“The stool was developed to appeal to users not only in terms of sophisticated detailing and formal resolution, but also in the context of mass customisation principles,” says Hardy. With legs sold separately, users can choose to mix colours, pair gloss with satin finishes or apply graphics to the piece.

The stool is made from renewable resources, including locally sourced B-B grade marine plywood, and natural rubber (used for the bumpers and feet details). Other materials include three screws, and three removable threaded inserts (unplated brass). The development of the stool takes into account environmentally sustainable attitudes towards construction and distribution, and cradle to cradle material use.
