Handmade Modern Minimal Cut Stool White Oak

$710

About

With this stool, we wanted to push the limits of structure both in physics and aesthetics. The stool is sawn from a single long hand-selected board and carefully milled with a miter joint detail that cascades from the seat down through the legs. This stool spans 18" without any central beam or joint, which would typically carry such a load and further include a slight gap right down the center. To further accentuate this void of support, we used cruciform 'butterfly' joints whimsically placed to 'tie' the stool together on the legs. This detail is an exploration of the differnt keys we are looking to create. To further accentuate the stools' slender span, we chose a double miter cut on the edge profile that almost makes the Bench's thickness at first glance disappear. The subtle interplay of each of these aesthetic dynamics produces a unique piece celebrating historical reference as much as structural ingenuity. This item is available in custom sizes or finishes upon request. Due to the natural materials used, the object received will be unique in material figuring and coloration. No Item assembly or installation is necessary. Care for the object is minimal and can be conditioned every 2 years to maintain the original finish wtih Monocoat Products. All of our pieces are originally designed and handmade in the Brooklyn, NY based Figure+Ground studio, we don't believe in the separation of design and fabrication. Each item is handcrafted, serialized, and shipped with a “Certificate of Authenticity”, documenting its place in history. Own an Original Figure+Ground Piece. #FIGUREGROUND.
