Where form meets function

Stockholm-based design Studio Note designed the Boet Stools with the idea of trees and birds nests in mind. “Boet” literally translates to “nest” in Swedish, and according to the designer, the stools embody “birds’ home among the trees; elevated, protected, carried by a strong tree, you find the soft, rounded shape of the nest” at the top.

The base of the stool is made from metal and the seat is crafted from cork. The Boet Stools come in different height levels and color options. Each model will be shown for the first time at the COUPLICITE exhibition during Maison et Objet in Paris 2011.
