At Wilkhahn, tomorrow’s working environment doesn’t begin at a desk but rather in the development and production of cutting-edge office furniture. With PrintStool One, we joined forces with designer Thorsten Franck to develop a dynamic stool whose body is manufactured using 3D printing technology. The sophisticated three-dimensional structures in PrintStool One combine the efficient use of material with robust strength. Thanks to the clever way in which the seat and base of the stool are connected, it can support up to 100 kg of weight. The dynamic stool, however, is not just an impressive high-tech product but also sets a new milestone in environmentally friendly product design with its use of the renewable, fully biodegradable material lignin.
