Carob Counter Stool by Sun at Six, Nude Minimalist Stool in Oak Wood

$810per item

About

Sun at six is a contemporary furniture design studio working with traditional Chinese joinery masters to handcraft our pieces using traditional joinery. This minimal counter stool combines clean lines with quality material: solid white oak and vegetable tanned leather from a multi-generation family-run Italian tannery in Tuscany. Made using traditional joinery techniques with exposed tenons visible throughout. For the Carob stool, we designed around what we like in a counter stool - a wide, cushioned, comfortable seat, a practical footrest, and an easily moveable form from all angles in a crowded space. The stool was designed around minimizing its horizontal footprint, maximizing the available space. Great furniture begins with quality materials: raw, sustainably sourced white oak, our house-made tenna oil, developed with years of testing, and full-grain, vegetable-tanned leathers that patina with age. We work to bring out the natural character already present in our materials. People matter to us. We source leather from with a family-owned tannery in Italy, and work with traditional Chinese joinery masters, who hand build each piece of furniture using fading, ancient joinery techniques. We finish with our own tenna oil, a natural oil we press and make from tree oils and nuts ourselves.  We work hard to find quality, sustainably sourced hardwoods, which are air-dried, hand-sealed, and carefully kiln-dried according to our own recipes. • Solid white oak • Tenna oil finish • Full-grain vegetable tanned leather • Handcrafted.

About the Maker

Sun at Six

Sun at Six is a furniture design studio interested in how spaces affect our everyday choices and how we interact with others. We want to design spaces to nourish relationships that matter. Great furniture begins with quality materials: raw, sustainably sourced white oak, house-made tenna oil, and full-grain, vegetable-tanned leathers that patina with age. We work to bring out the natural character already present in our materials. People matter to us. We source leather from with a family-owned tannery in Italy, and work with traditional Chinese joinery masters, who hand build each piece of furniture using fading, ancient joinery techniques. We make our furniture using classical Chinese joinery, a fading traditional artform passed down from generation to generation, which uses intricate, interwoven joints to create furniture without the use of any nails or screws. Today, the use of traditional joinery techniques has begun to fade. The complex joints are more expensive and difficult to cut, and fewer craftsmen remain who possess the specialized knowledge required. Though production of classical pieces has dwindled, we aim to create new opportunities by applying traditional technique to new design. We work hard to find quality, sustainably sourced hardwoods, which are air-dried, hand-sealed, and carefully kiln-dried according to our own recipes. Finally, our pieces are finished with our own tenna oil, a natural oil which we press and make ourselves from tree oils and nuts.
