‘Sidekick Stool’ by Timothy John for Thanks

A Kiwi furniture designer Timothy John has created this linear cork-and-metal stool for a New Zealand-based fashion brand Thanks. Composed of a round cork seat supported by a delicate, steel wire base which is available in either black or white colour versions, ‘Sidekick’ was inspired by “the silhouette of a glass science beaker.”

More about the design:

 

‘As the contents of an old school beaker were contained with a cork stopper, so too the stool top is made of cork. Cork is a natural product that intrigues the senses. It is warm, smooth, velvety to touch and earthy to smell. It is also is impermeable, buoyant, non-allergenic and fire resistant.’
