The Stooler converts any object into a stool

Not everyone is handy with power tools, but it doesn't necessarily mean that those who can't distinguish between a table saw and a band saw can't go and make some furniture of their own. Targeted at the unskilled among us, Spanish designer Andreu Carulla's Stooler is designed to make stool-making a simple task, by cinching ordinary objects together to create seating.

Created for Utoopic, the Stooler features four wooden legs held together by adjustable ratchet buckles. To make a stool, all you have to do is collect anything you might have lying around -- old newspapers, exercise balls, clothes, even stuffed animals -- and wrapping them together with the Stooler and tightening. Voilà, instant stool!

Unpretentious and practical, the Stooler makes good use of what you have already, while allowing you to also do it yourself (though the crate pictured above is a bit redundant). More over at Andreu Carulla Studio.
