Referencing material consumption, the Bag Stool looks like it's popping up right from the ground. Gschwendtner poses people consume too much today and she wants to turn around the process just like she turns the upside down shopping bag into a sitting element.
The outdoor concrete version weighs approximately 143 lbs. and comes with a fixation system. The indoor version is made from a mixture of concrete and wood fibers and weighs approximately 66 lbs. Due to the production process chosen by the designer, differences in sizes, shape and weight are inevitable.
