Boet is a simple stool design inspired by the birds’ nest on the trees. It was designed by Stockholm-based firm Note Design Studio. The Boet, which means Nest in Swedish, is available in two sizes; high and low. The stool design features a metal structure with nest-shaped metal bowl. A soft shape of cork sits inside the metal bowl, forming a warm and welcoming seat. The contrast between metal structure and cork creates a dynamic look.
In designer’s words, “In connection with our design concept for Johan & Nystrom’s new showroom in Helsinki, we needed a stool with strong character for the café in a high and a low model. The old port warehouse, where the café is located, is sturdy and heavy in brick and rough wooden beams. With this we have furnished with lots of color and a mix of unexpected materials, where Boet has a natural place.
Boet will be shown for the first time at the COUPLICITE exhibition during Maison et Objet in Paris 2011.
