The Float Stool designed by Nendo, references Ukiyo, an art print genre which flourished in Japan from the mid 17th century to the early 20th century. The analogy however, does not appear so much in the visual artifice which distinguishes the seat as much as in the fact that, as in the history of the prints, Float brokers the actual creative act with its commercial nature as an object devised and created the industrial design world. In this way aesthetic research is flanked by the study of the dynamics of force, aimed at reaching the perfect balance between strength and comfort. A seemingly plain stool with a rectangular plywood seating surface and steel pipe legs. Two of the four legs have been cut off from under the seating surface, thus creating a visual effect in which the seat appears to be simply floating in mid-air.
