It has been said that bamboo is ecologically friendly material, that is because it grows fast like weeds.
It takes over 30 years or much longer for woods to grow until when they can be used for making furniture, but as for bamboo, it takes only few years to fully grow to be useful.
This laminated bamboo stool has the slit from the sides to the top.
The slit gives ligher and shaper impression to the stool, but it also has a practial purpose as well.
You can lift the stool easily by grabing the slit like on the photo.
Beautiful side view of the stool.
This can be used as a side table as well.
The structure is strong enough to be used as a stepladder as well. Very usuful to have one of these in your home.
