Part of the nook collection, it is as if the wood has dictated this design. The darker strips flow naturally over the sides, giving it fluid movement and strength. The rounded corners evoke a human shape and reduce the severity and harshness of sharp corners.
Following the movement of the wood from the top of the backrest to the base, one feels they are watching a cascade of water moving down a varied embankment. Such is the zen beauty and flow of these carefully sculpted bar stools. The contours also allow comfortable lounging for long inspired conversations.
The artist blended several elements and techniques from his famed repertoire in creating this exquisite piece. The wood is sculpted in such a way as to emphasize each contour while the curved seat seems to float in the midst like a cloud. It's as if Louis XIV dreamt of Sleepy Hollow before its time.
