Ingrained by Henry Lawrence


Intrigued by the way in which we experience furniture, in particular, how we use it as means of communicating trust in a situation, London-based designer Henry Lawrence has created Ingrained - a leaning stool that rocks and reclines back into its original state once sat upon.

Designed for a brief pause and intended for dynamic spaces such as corridors, thresholds and places of change, the stool questions how the user personally feels about having individuality and movement in this situation.

When sat on the stool, the user sits at eye level with passers by; raising implications of personal space for the user and the experience gained whilst waiting.
