Y-J stool


Y-J stool is an open sourced stool that lends itself to user customization.

Legs and top can be easily removed for smooth transportation, or replaced by other leg and top designs. 

Made with casted aluminum or 3D printed PLA, the Y-J stool highlights its customizable joint.


 

D.I.Y MODULARITY


At the heart of the Y-J Stools design lies its D.I.Y. modularity. The Y-Joint can be purchased alone, leaving the design and material of legs and top to be determined to the user. With no tools needed, assembly and disassembly to transport or swap designs is effortless.
