Metsä Stool

Designed by Geoffrey Riberry and Emmanuel Taillard, the Metsä stool was made so that the designers could learn Finnish furniture-making technique while creating an elegant and functional chair. To this end, each component made use of a different tool and method. The resulting piece has tree-like legs and a triangle cut out from the seat, allowing for easy grip. Angular yet natural, the chair is crafted from solid birch.
