Imitating the design of a basic drafting stool, this stool has a large screw in the center of the seat. A drafting stool is designed to yield maximum productivity in design settings by having adjustable features.
On this drafting stool, as the seat spins down, a phallic screw 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 European standard that is glorified
within art, especially at art school, as well
as the patriarchal system that dominates
both the art world and everyday life, are
mocked. Based on the design of Victorian
tea tables, the table is essentially a man
bending over on all fours, looking at his
butthole and balls hanging down between his legs.

The highly ornamented and esteemed 18th century style tea table is mimicked in this CNC’d table. Respect for fine woodworking is insulted by the production of this table being completely digital, but also nodded to through modernization of the same fine design. Containing the same curves as the original tea tables created by master woodworkers, this table was designed on Rhino, and cut out of a sheet of plywood using a CNC Router. It is assembled without any glue or fasteners.

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 the
same potency into whatever objects are placed in the box
