Praying five times a day is one of the five basic pillars in Islam. The Elif stool by Ömer Karaman is designed for people with physical impairments who are unable to lower themselves to the
ground and who conduct their prayers sitting.
The angled sitting surface and the corresponding height of the stool result in a comfortable seating position. The slender design of the stool enables the user to join the rows of prayer participants without creating a gap and without disturbing the spiritual atmosphere of the space.
The project focuses on SDG 12, “responsible consumption and production”.
