The Glo.ol was devised to help foster connections between individuals in a public park but also function as a lighting device to illuminate paths when the stool is not in use. The stool tests the limits of digital fabrication by advancing architectural and industrial design practices. The form of the stool is designed to allow for more stools to aggregate, forming a bench. A script was developed to control the height, width, and pattern on the seat. This allowed for more stools to be easily produced, provided one has a sheet of metal and a maple wood sheet. The script can be run on a CNC machine and Plasma cutter and assembled by welding and bolting the pieces together.
