2013

Natale is an emotional and familial moment. Antonio wanted to design an object embedded with these significant memories, in the form of a simple product which was less luxurious and expensive than the objects from his previous collections. He thought of a stool that could be have been seen in our parents or grandparents living rooms. Made from Pine Plywood, its smell is also a warm ‘clin d’oeil’ to the Christmas atmosphere.

Simple in construction, Little Stool plays with the archetype of a common stool. Minimal but with characterful details, the stools overlapping legs form layers and shadows. This reinterpretation gives more visual depth to a simple stool while adding stability and strength.
Fun and playful, the stools can be stacked together to become a couple or a little group of friends. Having one is useful, and two or three is even more practical! The Little Stool is the perfect gift for kids or the playful adult in us all.

Dimensions: W40cm • D21cm • H23cm
Material: Pine Plywood

"The Little Stool was designed and made specifically for Christmas, and for Ilaria I’s temporary shop in Modena, Italy."
