Created on a whim when responding to the brief of designing a stool for her Design Process class, Tess created ‘The intestine Stool’. The idea of piece was conceived by exploring the concept of a stool, and not just the furniture type. The piece was created by Analyzing the digestive system, specifically inspired by the shape and role of Intestines in the body. Tess wanted the piece to evoke humour and choose to play on how the process of food moving through intestines ended up in a stool. As too would her design process end up in a stool, though this time for furniture. Although the idea is taboo, the overall piece is aesthetically pleasing and functional. It is made from laser cut mild steel and.
