Making Instructions (Login to see the full instructions)

Paper tubes are made with the wooden core technique, and exterior graphic design is a result of choosing the most attractive and colorful sheets available on the printed newspapers and magazines used to make this stool.
The stool is an almost 100% reused paper object. All the components are made with paper, a few wooden sticks, linen cord and some glue.
The strength and visual aspect of the object is surprising. The atomo stool spread the forces by its structure, avoiding weak points. The central structure with the ball-shaped union is the secret of its strength, and gives the name to the stool due to the analogy with an atom shape.
The seat is made by braiding paper. It has similar properties as wicker, and a impressive visual aspect. All the stool is reinforced by a thin glue layer, which is needed to fix and protect the object.
The external design is customized by choosing the best images available on the selected paper.
