Tuffet

The very first prototype to be launched at Milan 2010. The stools are made from sawdust and resin, from a process in its infancy developed by Turners and Moore and Purewhyte (an early version of Kirstywhyte.com).

The Sawdust and resin mix is molded under high pressure and heat. The resulting material can then be worked and finished like timber. This process uses a material that would usually be thrown away; using a mould also means a larger shape can be made with less wastage in comparison to solid timber.
