New York Seating

A bag that easily and subtly transforms into a stool.

This bag was designed in response to living in NYC. With the train as main mode of transportation, a bag is always necessary to carry around the necessities. When not taking the train, walking is the next preferred option- but it can get tiring! This bag offers a simple solution: the wooden top acts a seat, with an internal slot on the underside of the top to hold a single wooden leg. Once the leg is inserted into the slot, the bag conceals a one-legged stool system. When you're ready to move on, just pick up the bag and go. 
The bag functions by acting as a one-legged stool. 
The bag takes its shape from the simple brown paper shopping bag.

The wooden leg fits into the wooden slot hidden on the underside of the wooden top.
