Rift, a simple barstool.

Year: 2017

Materials: Powder Coated Steel, Ash.


The Rift barstool was designed as part of the ‘Tools for Everyday Life’ collective and exhibited at ICFF NYC. It is designed to be a simple yet elegant piece of furniture which is able to effortlessly take to a variety of social environments.

The key aesthetic features come from the contrast created from using two different forms of steel extrusions. The flat sided oval tubing brings a sense of stability and assurance, whilst the familiar round tubing of the legs contributes to the elegant and petite aesthetic. The seat of the stool is composed of ash which features a split detail in the middle to accommodate a handle to allow the stool to picked up easily and moved.
