Beech wood, brass and rattan weave inset
60 x 21 x 42
Inspired by the simple beauty of, first, a stool - an elementary and utterly mobile home furniture, and the memory of retro rocking rattan horses from childhood. The rocking stool can be used as a dining stool or sat astride like a rocking horse.
As children, we all build memories during play, and perhaps, even build emotional bonds with furniture that we recall on with fondness. While not intentionally created for children, the JIA JU Rocking Stool provides users with a way to share or reminisce on childhood memories and build new stories. Handcrafted with an angular polygon seat, the brass hexagon inset represents the six senses, including emotion, while the rattan within harks back to childhood nostalgia.
Along with deliberate style lines, the stool also features cleanly finished joints that recall the artistry of Ming Dynasty craftsmanship in mortise and tenon joinery.
Due to the use of natural materials, variations in pattern and color will differ.
