Just like mushroom, a combination of the top and base of stool, which was inspired by a childhood memory, I was usually attracted by the lovely mushroom when I watching cartoon and walking in the forest. I keep the basic shape of it and make it more simple. Two materials- wool felt and wood combination. They are all natural, soft and warm materials. I wish the stool could recall people’s memory and bring them a colorful and joyful mood.


People usually have some interesting memories and favorite things during their childhood. This is a stool designed for children or young people. I want to make a mushroom stool of memory during our childhood. I wish the stool could recall people’s memory and bring them a colorful and joyful mood.


Two materials combination- wood and felt, all of those two materials are soft, warm and natural materials. We can see the texture and color when I use the original color of wood, and choose red and white felt can make the stool more colorful more attractive. Just like mushroom, a combination of the top and base of stool, which was inspired by a childhood memory, I was usually attracted by the lovely mushroom when I watching cartoon and walking in the forest.


They think the “Mushroom” is suitable for children and very lovely. All of them want to try to sit on it and they also have some memories related to mushroom when they were young. Those two materials also make them feel warm and comfortable. I have learned that it is a good way to design according to our memory and this memory also can recall other’s experiences.
