Twisted Kolme Stool

By Matthew Bradshaw

The Kolme stool consists of a single molded plywood shape repeated three times around the central axis. The shape of each leg pushes the limits of conventional plywood molding; rendering the design as sculptural, lightweight, and robust. It uses a minimum of material and energy, while stacking for easy storage and transportation.


Based in Brooklyn, a self-described ‘Lego-kid’, Matthew spent a large part of his childhood drawing and inventing things he would later throw down his parents’ stairs. He began his formal studies with an invitation to the Rochester Studio of Fine arts at 15. He then studied Industrial Design at Pratt Institute where he graduated from in 2005. Focusing on Furniture and Product design, his work has been best described as ’simple, yet not simplistic’. Typically it is material, or process driven, and is often imbued with both a sensitivity towards concept, and an honesty to the principle that form is inherent in function.
