I love nothing more than to find a new take on a common item. The Totem stool is cleverly designed to stack in a unique way. The pyramid shape in the sides of each stool gives you the ability to stack one into the other, not only creating a practical storage solution but also a captivating abstract sculpture.

Totem stools are made from LDPE (low-density polythene) so they are lightweight, durable and waterproof. They can be filled with sand or water for a more permanent seating option and you can even place LED lights inside to produce a subtle glow. The practical shape also lends itself to many other applications such as a side table, footrest, book/menu holder or whatever your imagination brings.
