A new collection of stools offers a relaxed, contemporary attitude toward interior design. The stool features a robust cast aluminum base finished with a highly durable powder coat paint in a variety of colors. The geometric, elementary framework of the base is an interpretation of the familiar tripod structure; its tripod legs visually contained by two rings. Suitable for outdoor use.
Taking cues from the aesthetic principles of Modernism and pragmatic considerations of the height-adjustable stools manufactured for sewing professionals in the mid-century era, the Piton™ Stool and Table are equally well suited for industrial tasks and domestic settings.
The geometric, elementary framework of the pieces is an interpretation of the familiar tripod structure; the conical base, unified by two concentric rings, guards against the potential for imbalance caused by an uneven floor, equally distributing weight so as to counteract the tendency of the stool's three-legged counterpart to wobble. The die-cast material is equally resilient to abrasions and dents, having been cast from the same material used for the foot of the Barber Osgerby Lounge Collection.

Barber, 1969 / Osgerby, 1969
“The pencil is the ultimate tool for the transfer of ideas from mind to paper.” - Edward Barber
Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, both born in England in 1969, studied architecture and interior design together at the Royal College of Art in London. They founded their own architecture and design studio – Barber Osgerby – in 1996. Known for their roguish designs such as the Tip Ton chair for Vitra and the Tab Light for Flos, the East London-based pair have been showered with a number of prestigious awards including the Jerwood Applied Arts Prize for Furniture, and most recently they were awarded the title of Royal Designers for Industry by the Royal Society of Arts.
Much of Barber and Osgerby’s early work involved the folding and shaping of sheet material, influenced by the white card that they had used frequently in architectural model making. Plywood and perspex were used in the development of the Pilot Table, 1999, and Stencil Screen, 2000.
