This piece is inspired by the traditional stools commonly found in carpentries in Tlacotalpan, Veracruz, Mexico. The stools are built as a multifunctional piece using as little material as possible and using simple joints and nails.
This stool is great for sitting, stepping or for temporary surfaces.
This piece is made entirely out of red cedar by the skilled carpenters in Tlacotalpan.
The Carpenter’s Stool is one of the design products resulting from The Chair that Rocks, a cultural initiative started by Studio José de la O, where carpenters from Tlacotalpan collaborate with product designers and artists.
