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.
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.
There are no sharp edges in this piece, all one finds are smooth joyful curves. No over-bright glazes, only a subtle sheen. No grave message, just lighthearted whimsy expressed in wood. This office stool is a quirky take on the tree stumps workers of old would rest on.
