We’ve all seen people resting on their basketballs. It comes natural when you need to catch your breath after playing ball, but did it ever cross your mind to use this action to create a versatile structure? Eindhoven-based designer Joong Han Lee of Studio Homunculus imagined an upside-down stool that supports three different functions – it can be a storage bucket – hence the item’s name – an ergonomic stool or a table base.

The Bucket Stool and Storage by Joong Han Lee is reminiscent of basketball hoops. Available in larger sized variations to be used as a bar stool, this simple design Imagine your basketball-loving kid surprised with a stool that can be used both as a furniture item and as a storage space. It would look awesome in a boy’s bedroom and no wonder its shape would beautifully adorn a home gym. It’s up to you – where do you store your basketballs?
