Boltie stool is designed based on the traditional Chinese stool. With its smaller size, it is best fitted for the small living spaces. Boltie stools can transform from a stool to a bench and even to a shelf with just a twist of some wing bolts.

Through experimentations, users learn to challenge and reimagine the olds in new ways.

Small living space is a problem shared by many residents who live in metropolitan cities like Hong Kong. The limited spatial distribution has restricted size and function of household products. Through our observation and everyday life experience, we are finding ways to expand the horizon of single- and multi-functional products. An "inter-functional" household system that foresees new ways of living in small spaces. Bringing traditional to transformational by combining history with contemporary system. Using system design along with product design to enhance the user experience. To help small living space residents on discovering fresh ways of using new and existing goods.
