The CROFTON Stool collection gives an understated nod to elegant Asian design traditions whilst embracing honest, natural pinewood. Pine is one of the most common types of wood in the Nordics and it paves the way to working with local materials in the design of new Scandinavian furniture.
In many ways, the material has become a key feature of the CROFTON Stool. By working exclusively with the highest quality of pine, and refining its natural look with a great attention to detail e.g. by following the grain of the wood in placing each piece and working with a subtle wood stain for a smooth and elegant surface expression. Another winning feature of pine is how well it ages, the more you use it, the more beautiful its surface will become.
“The aim was to create a robust stool with a slender width whilst still retaining comfort. The purpose for this is to maximise space at bar and work areas whilst giving a relaxing sit for long or more informal seating periods. The gentle curves and strong silhouette add to the inviting nature”, explains designer Daniel Schofield on his approach to creating the Crofton Stool, which name is a nod to the area of London in which he lives – Crofton Park.
