Three legs, a comfortable seat, and simple lines. The Irene stool is a piece that Fernando designed for low counters, ranging from 80 to 85 cm in height.
Behind the design
The central idea of this project was to create a comfortable seat where the user could rest their feet on the ground. The solution was to shape the edges of the seat in a downward curvature, resembling a mushroom, to avoid pressure on the legs, with the center of the seat concave.
Made of freijó wood, the Irene stool is 50 cm in height, with a seat higher than that of a chair but not so high that it requires foot support in its structure.
The stool is named after Irene Seigle, a great Franco-African friend of Fernando.
