Solid walnut makes this stool sturdy, not clunky. Assembled using only biscuit joinery, the piece appears to defy gravity, leaving the heavy walnut with a smooth finish that is softened with the natural blonde highlights found in the wood.
The trough can be used to store fruit or recipes and is the perfect height for a side table or bar stool while the footrest is placed with comfort in mind.
Dimensions: 24 H x 14 W x 12 D in 61 H x 35.5 W x 30.5 D cm.
Thislexik is a contemporary furniture design studio that pushes the boundaries of how conventional materials are used. They flip the concept of form-based design on its head, working at the intersection of aesthetics, science, and humor.
Founded in 2014 by multidisciplinary industrial designer Vedat Ulgen, Thislexik focuses on designing and producing high-quality handmade home goods and furniture that are unique and oftentimes conceptual, without sacrificing functionality. Thislexik approaches design with a loud and deliberate aesthetic, providing an environment to realize the unmade and unseen without boundaries or subtlety.
Because they are committed to ecologically responsible and intelligent methods, Thislexik believes that what they create is just as important as where they create it. Located inside of five reclaimed shipping containers in the heart of Red Hook in Brooklyn, New York, the 1,500 square foot studio implements an eco-friendly design for sustainability.
