BY Francesca Connolly

UK designer Tom Dixon’s Offcut Stool transforms remnants of scrap wood into functional seating. The circular round seat makes clever use of curved offcuts (the wood closest to the bark that is removed when timber is sawn and planed for use); its construction requires no additional screws or glue; and the stool is flat packed for ease of delivery. The Offcut Stool in solid oak with a natural soaped finish is $235; the Offcut Stool Fleuro is painted Dixon’s signature fluorescent orange; $250 at Y Living.
