Fidia is the first prototype created on the material research on which VIRAL NATURE (my graduation project at the Royal College of Art) is based.

Fidia is inspired by the ruins of ancient Greek temples. This modular stackable stool looks like a column and lasts only for a season. I wanted to make a stool for outdoors that while decaying would give life to something new. An object made for men and for the environment. A mark of man but integrated with the surrounding nature.
