Tre Foil Wooden Stool is a simple wooden stool that explores the rural culture, particularly the traditional handcrafted wooden objects. The inspiration comes from the traditional three-legged stool that in most regions of Romania accompanied the low table that gathered the family around the hearth in a farmer’s house. The bond between the farmer and its objects was defined by the craft and knowledge used in realising them. The simplicity in function and construction of the crafted objects shows their relationship with the user: to serve his daily activities around the farm. The current stool tries to explore this balanced relationship between function, construction and craft, but finding contemporary means of expression through the wooden joints. The structure of the stool and the way it is constructed is meant to be easily understood and to define its aesthetic features.
How Its Made
Tre Foil Wooden Stool is realized entirely out of solid oak in a wooden workshop and using traditional craftsmanship. Oak is a natural material renowned for its longevity and beautiful aging qualities.
