The next time you find yourself lost in the woods and need a comfy place to sit while you wait for rescue, remember designer Mary Dickerson's clever Ash Cushion stool.
Built by vertically grouping long pieces of plyable ash wood that have been carefully notched so they compress under pressure, the wooden stool doesn't have a shred of stuffing but still looks comfier than half the stuff in Ikea's catalogue. But at least you can buy those. If you want an Ash Cushion to call your own you'll need to break out your wood-working tools and build one yourself. [MoCo Loco via Notcot]
