The ‘Trusty’ stool has been developed together with Polish craftsmen, who specialise in making wooden utensils, employing traditional carving methods using axes, chisels and spokeshaves.
The craftsman’s ‘hand’ is visible from a distance, in the undulating appearance of the chiseled surface, which gives an extra-soft touch to the solid wooden seat. The product is made from linden wood and it is lightweight.
The stool is protected by natural oil, which creates a water-repellent and durable coating. The natural finish showcases the full natural beauty of the wood and highlights the sculptural appearance of its chiseled surface.
