Ishi & Uma

Stuart Houghton & Craig Rosevear

Ishi (stool without ends) 500(h) x 560(w) x 350(d) mm
Uma (stool with ends) 510(h) x 800(w) x 340(d) mm

Abstracted and reduced from a sawhorse, these monastic pieces for occasional use are grounded and secure - seats to sit upright and breathe. The design utilises standard grade timbers often wasted, off-cuts thoughtfully assembled. The names Ishi and Uma are chosen to mean seat and horse respectively. The ideas of the two designers diverged during the collaborative process and in the end they produced both designs.
