Tembo is an unusual stool with structural stratification of different materials such as wood, metal and cork, creatively intertwined in an aesthetically attractive contemporary piece of furniture. With its symbolic name that means “elephant” in Swahili and its shape that resembles African drums, this stool is considered as a “modern totem” in the world of design.
The collection “Tembo” contains high and low stools, available in two versions. “Jekyll” is a chair with a metal base with layers of rich natural wood with different geometric shapes, black lacquered MDF boards and comfortable seat made of natural cork. “Hyde” has the same design but it has rhythmically repeated orange elements.
“Tembo” stools have slightly smaller dimensions than the standard diameter and because of the compact dimensions and intelligent selection of lightweight materials, they are practical for use in any home or office.
