Pig on the wings” belongs to a breed of little anthropomorphic wood objects that like to infest homes designed by Gentle Giants. It is both a stool and an end table. “Pig on wings” has a very simple design, the inspiration for its shape can be found in the “traccia table” by Meret Oppenheim. The challenge facing this project was to reduce manufacturing processes; to build an evocative and high quality item using few simple making steps. This stool is assembled without using any screws or glue; all parts are wedged with each other.
