Product Design
Siemens’ Home Sweet Home Design Contest for Blackcork, Lisbon Design Show.
2014
Project Awards: 2nd Place, Siemens' contest Home Sweet Home

In a simple and refined form, TRIC is a type of stool that is composed of two pieces. The introduction of stainless steel intends to highlight the black cork and, at the same time, create a contrast of texture between the organic and the industrial. This contrast is also felt at the sensory level, ranging between hot and cold, rough and soft.

The seat base has emerged from the triangular shape, in order to maintain the rationality of the concept at the level of formal simplicity.

The asymmetry between the dimensions of the base and the seat give greater stability to the stool. The fillet gives a friendly way, not only visually but also in their use, providing seating comfort. 

The metal piece that visually weaves the cork assumes three functions: the footrest, backrest and support to facilitate the handling of the stool. Its shape born around the cork block towards creating a formal symbiosis between both.

This project took the 2nd place in the Siemens’ contest Home Sweet Home
