Bad Little Brother designed the “Stool” to furnish the reading room for Unrestrooms. The stool is composed of a standard padded toilet seat (a nod to the exhibition’s interest in comfort and “rest”) and IKEA Marius stools from Front/Space’s collection.
We cherish the concept of the IKEA “hack,” as well as the dadaist traditions of assemblage. The padded lid can remain closed, or flip up to mimic a chair back. On the night of the exhibition opening, volunteers staffed the reading room to answer questions about restroom rights and local resources for LGBTQIA+ and TGNC folks.
