It's a seat-of-the-pants mission for designers

OXFORD’S Pitt Rivers Museum is well known for its collection of striking exhibits. So it was the perfect venue for an unusual collection of wooden stools.
Students on the furniture design foundation course at Oxford and Cherwell Valley College joined forces with the museum to create the stools, which will go on display from March 11 until April 21.
Gus Swanson, 22, who lives off Abingdon Road, said: “The museum is so vast and has such a variety of artefacts I couldn’t decide what to pick.”
Mr Swanson added: “I decided instead to look at the display cases the objects were in.”
Mr Griffiths, 19, who also lives off Abingdon Road, designed a one-legged stool held together by rope.
He said: “It’s a bit of a weird one, but I was surprised by how comfortable it was.”
