Imitating a drafting stool, which is used in design settings and designed to create maximum productivity, this stool has a large screw in the center of the seat.
When the seat spins down, this phallus emerges from it, making it very uncomfortable for the user.
This is a representation of men exerting their masculinity and dominance in design, and work settings in general, affecting the capacity of others around them.

Three basic structural elements of a bench
(seat, legs, and stretcher) are both separated
into three distinct shapes (rectangle in the seat,
triangle formed by the legs, and a circle
formed at each end of the turned stretcher),
and unified by their dramatic intersections
through each other.
The bold T shape as well as the box being wall hung
references the omnipotence of a cross on the wall.
The box has no religious significance but places that
sort of power that some see in a cross,
into whatever objects are placed in the box
(previously being my Adidas Superstar 2.0’s
that saw me through 5 years of my life).

The European standard that is glorified
within art, especially at art school, as well
as the patriarchal system that dominates
everyday life and the art world are
challenged. Designed based off of Victorian
tea tables, the table is essentially a man
leaning over on all fours, looking at his
butthole and balls hanging down.
