For Casamania this year, Philadelphia-based designer Josh Owen debuted SOS, the veritable Swiss Army knife of stools. Made of lightweight 100 percent recyclable polyethylene, the seat features curved handles on either side for securing wine glasses or cups, a rimmed top that can be used as a tray, and a hollow inner core; turn the thing over and use it as a super-sturdy indoor/outdoor planter or vase. Or you can, you know, sit on it. The multi-tasking stool was recently admitted to the permanent collection at Paris’s Centre Georges Pompidou and is available for sale at Unica Home. www.joshowen.com
