These wonderful stools called "Throne and Pew Stools" are a design by Torsten Sherwood, graduated at the University of Bath, England. He has presented these nice stools at the recent Salone Satellite during the Salone del Mobile in Milan. They are inspired by the constraint-based approach of vernacular craft designers like the Shakers, who base their work on an understanding of materials, construction and craft. The design is an innovative take on traditional timber details. Although intricate, the designs are easy to make and a good example of tectonic design, where construction and poetry combine. The technically elegant solutions are aesthetically elegant too.
