by Ilse Lang, 2000
The Tribo stool designed by Brazilian architect and designer Ilse Lang represents pure harmony between aesthetics and function. The design of the stool was inspired by a traditional wooden stools used by the “gauchos” - southern Brazilian cowboys - as they gathered around campfires drinking maté. Lang considers simplification to be an evolution: to focus on what is essential. Made of the solid oak and steel, the Tribo stool features a seat with three open slots which allow the stools to be stackable up to three high. Thanks to the height and low profile of the stools they also perfectly function as small side tables. Available also as a bar stool.
