Why is it Special?
Inspired by the contrasting surfaces of corroded wood ageing and industrial metal structures often found in docks or shipyards, Kasper Rønn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen, the two Danish designers behind NORM Architects, have taken a modern Scandinavian approach to create RAFT - a unique piece of furniture that combines simplistic purity with a discreetly aged look.
The sandblasted surface of the RAFT stool accentuates the structure of the wood, while the triple legs have the playful appearance of a living creature in motion.
The position of the legs allow for two seating positions, either with a single led forward or two. The flat seat also makes the stool equally useful as a side table.
