VAVA Stool by Kristine Five Melvaer
Updated: Jan 28, 2020
VAVA is a stackable stool that combines classical elements in a new way. The name is inspired by the legs which move up and down around the stool in a steady rhythm, giving the furniture its recognizable character. The legs have an unusual angle, turning inwards in one axis and outwards in another axis. This adds to the characteristic expression, while at the same time giving stability. The seat looks like it rests lightly on the structure below, but is fixed to the structure with discreet plugs. The prototypes was exhibited for the first time at the Aurora exhibition at the Stockholm Furniture Fair in February 2016, and Melvær is currently looking for the right producer to collaborate with on the further development.
Vava Stool is made from Ash wood treated with white pigmented oil or lacquered in matt black laquer.
