Unique Chairs of the Wire Stump by Peter Jakubik- Friday, October 19th 2012.
The stool was created by Peter Jakubik of Slovakia. Designed a set of outdoor furniture inspired by tree stumps except made of a combination of rebar and wood. The Wire Stump by Peter Jakubik come in various sizes and could alternatively be used as side tables as well when they are left idle. In a functional fashion, the stools are easily stackable, and even a casual stack of three such stools becomes visually appealing and attractive. New collection of garden furniture using bended and welded rebar structures for stand and oil coated pine wood for stool saddle.
Wire Stump by Peter Jakubik collection offers a unique take on the classic stool. From the top, this stool would seem like it was as ordinary as any other stool we would find these days. The original oval wood grain shapes are simplified and reduced into polygonal shapes and replicated to form the base through a bending and welding process. The original wood pieces have been shaped into polygons and then coated with a simple oil finish. Available in various sizes, the stools can easily be used as side tables. Details as the metallic rings and unwrought welds and edges are supposed to create the impression of a cheap home-made product or a draft. The base comes in several pastel colors and the tops have natural shades. The stools are stackable, this making them easy to store. Because of its playful pastel shades, the rebar appears to be supple and malleable though the metal retains its physical strength.
The Wire Stump by Peter Jakubik pieces are very simple in terms of design. Comparing to wooden stump, the wired stump is lighter weight and the stools are stackable. The colorful squiggles, somewhat reminiscent of twisted wire coat hangers, form a cage-like structural support for the octagonal plane of wood. The bases of the stools and tables are a sort of cage-like structures.
