Garrison Stool and Side Table | 52-102
The Garrison is a sculptural iron casting intended for use as a stool or side table. It
recycles steel salvaged from the 2015 demolition of the namesake Garrison bridge near
Toronto’s Fort York. True to STACKLAB’s ethos, however, the Garrison’s shape is not
intended to be a formal representation or memorialization of any of the bridge’s
Instead, the Garrison exemplifies STACKLAB’s mission to repurpose discarded or waste
materials in a way that imbues them with new life and meaning.
Its form was derived using digital real-time parametric design and fabrication
technology. STACKLAB optimized the product to be as light and strong as possible: the
Garrison’s 35-lb. weight can support a load of 900 lbs.
STACKLAB and its partnering firm Rebart procured two tons of bridge rebar, enough to
release a limited-edition run of 102 units. Units 52 to 102 are all iron. The sand-casting
process produces faintly perceptible irregularities that enhance the Garrison’s tactile appeal.
