Belgian design studio LMBRJK has brought together machine precision and artistic sensibilities to create the Sadl Stool, available here in raw, sanded, and patina. One would never guess from its organic and curvaceous form that Sadl was first imagined as a 3D surface model in CAD; then each of the nearly eighty layers that support the sitter was laser cut before being glued and hand-assembled. LMBRJK has dubbed this material “digitial wood,” referring to the manipulation and “reorganization” of sheet plywood to achieve a synthetic wood assembly. Not only does the stool’s multi-layered structure add to its strength, but it also makes for a unique and elegant aesthetic. In this modern approach to a material that is anything but, LMBRJK has successfully revived and updated traditional wood furniture construction to create something that is both functional and beautiful.
