Smile Stool by Fitorio Leksono
Indonesian designer Fitorio Leksono has designed the Smile Stool in collaboration with Adisty Kanastari. In designer’s words, “Smile Stool is a melting point between contemporary design and Indonesian craftsmanship. Breaking the reality that wood bent technology is not available in Indonesia, we are using a new approach to overcome that barrier.
Using waste material from wood furniture industry with embedded rod metal construction, we resulted in a wood bent shape and unconventional wood grain direction. In unison to the name, we hope that this stool will attract smile to us. From the eco-friendly process, and the new contemporary approach to traditional craftsmanship.”
