Experiments playing with tights, exploring ways in which to gender seating. To force the movement of the person interacting with the stool, I sewed tights onto the seat in which you to climb into in order to sit down. I have included the set of photographs on the next pages in which I have attempted to visually illustrate this.
I continued this research by making a small Lacewood stool with yellow stained sycamore legs which I wrapped stuffed flesh coloured tights around the seat as seen below. Whilst this does not necessarily strictly gender the seat, I think it affords it a somewhat weirdly effeminate quality and poses questions about its intended user.
