Stool in solid wood of scented cedar machined from a single block, is inspired by the characteristic African stools, traditionally formed by carving into a wooden block of shea with the use of artisan chisels. The products are made from completely natural wood, hand-finished without the addition of any treatment. Any movements, cracks and changes in the appearance of the wood are intrinsic characteristics of these items and result from the natural settlement and diverse environmental conditions of the wood.
