perching stools

Design Studioilse, 2016
Saddle leather, leather cord, powder-coated steel base
Made in The Netherlands by Artifort

A family of comfortable stools for flexible use, ideal for our healthier, mobile lives. Hand-stitched leather saddles over a simple wire frame, made for friendly, helpful companions to any occasional seated situation.

Studioilse, led by Ilse Crawford and Oscar Pena, is a multi-disciplinary design studio with a simple mission to put human needs and desires at the center of all that they do. This means creating environments where humans feel comfortable; public spaces that make people feel at home and homes that are habitable and make sense for the people who live in them. It means designing furniture and products that support and enhance human behavior and actions in everyday life. It means restoring the human balance in brands and businesses that have lost their way.

Perching stools are offered in three sizes in a choice of leather and frame finish combinations. Powder-coat finish on frame has slight texture. Leather cord is the same color as the seat.

The foundations of Artifort were laid by Jules Wagemans. In 1890, he set up business as an upholsterer in Maastricht. His son, Henricus Wagemans, expanded the company into a furniture factory, which had a showroom in Amsterdam by the end of the 1930's and was already well known nationally. The economic recession of the nineteen thirties forced H. Wagemans & Van Tuinen, as the furniture company was then known, to create a distinctive profile. The emphasis came to lie on functionality, comfort, and quality combined with aesthetically pleasing design and an innovative use of materials. The new brand name became Artifort, derived from the Latin word 'ars' meaning 'art or knowledge', and 'fortis' meaning "strong or powerful."
