I believe that a good design doesn't necessarily have to impress users through its appearance; it can also surprise them with cleverly designed structures. Following this principle, I designed the Boring Stool. It consists of six components, including the metal piece at its core. Only by following a specific sequence can the twelve screws be assembled with the stool legs and top. I want to convey to users that sometimes seemingly mundane designs often conceal the designer's ingenuity, just like how everyday life is filled with surprises. It's important to always maintain a curious mindset.
