An initiative by Xcel Industrial Supplies Pte Ltd, Triple Eyelid studios has teamed up with Soh Ju Hu on a series of furniture and products primarily made from reclaimed pallet wood.


For the standing desk worker! This minimal IKEA-hack stool provides enough comfort to rest legs in between working while standing. 

Selected heat-treated reclaimed pine timber ensures that no two furniture is alike. The nail holes are a reminder of the timber's pallet past life. A combination of simplicity meets upcycling provides a clean profile suitable for any working environment. 

Every piece of timber is carefully measured to achieve the overall dimension of the stool. Before the timber can be use, they are checked repeatedly for the presence of rusty nails. After ensuring all nails have been removed, the timber are hand sanded using 400, 800 and 1200 grade sandpaper to sure no wood splinter can hurt the end user.  


All timber used in making this stool are heat treated pallet pine wood collected in Singapore. They are all ready to be discarded if not collected. We also encourage customers to reuse their old IKEA table frame for a 10% discount when purchased from our website.
