Inspired by the imagery of travel and of the great expeditions of the late 19th century, we decided to reinterpret a travel classic: the folding stool.

The stool is the result of the close observation of fine leatherwork principles, expressing craftsmanship and savoir-faire, allied to atelier oï ’s research on origami, the Japanese art of folding.

In materializing the art of folding, we transposed historical malletier techniques, such as the use of rigid membrane wrapped in soft skin, using modern materials. Thus, a light and thin leather satchel is able to transform into a seat in a single movement, allowing a pause during the journey … ” Available in different color compositions, the stool can stand as a unique item or live together with other pieces of the family.
