studio ve



item: endy stool
material: available in oak, ash, maple, mahogany and cherry.
designed by: studio ve, tel aviv
photos via: studio ve
comments: these stools are made of six components. Three pieces for the seat and three for the legs. the angles of the components, silhouette of the stool and bright colors made me stop to investigate. i'm glad i did because the story behind the colors is interesting. the ends of lumber are apparently vulnerable so saw mills paint them for protection. normally, the painted ends are discarded as waste. studio ve decided to give emphasis to this as a nod to the wood's source, while also enjoying the bright colors. not only is this more efficient with less waste, it's also playful. nice.
