Design by Marcel Wanders, 2006.
Stone is a stool with a simple shape but with a very precious appearance reminiscent of an hourglass.
Made with an essential symmetrical linear shape, its surface is simply extraordinary: it is irregular and comprised of a myriad of geometrical facets which reflect the light and create a striking and unique play of colors, much like a diamond. Due to its jewel-like nature, Stone is offered in the colors of precious stones. Select from six transparent colors.
