Stools by Christophe Delcourt
Updated: Jan 28, 2020
Roi, Fou and Mat and Dam are a set of elegant and modern stools designed by Christophe Delcourt. Roi, Fou and Mat draw their stylistic vocabulary and their close shapes from the tradition of turned wood, in this precious and fine art consisting in subtracting, hollowing out and redrawing the material so as to glorify it. They might evoke the outline of a chess piece or a pommel horse. But they first are comfortable stools and welcoming leather seats.
Close cousin of Roi, Fou and Mat stools, Dam stool is a piece of ceramic topped with a natural and curved leather seat. A light and well-built stool which pertinently completes its siblings, inspired by chess pieces.
