Bow-Wow Stool

The stools were originally designed for the Four Boxes Gallery, a new gallery at Krabbesholm Højskole. The stools are named after the Japanese architects who designed the gallery: Atelier Bow-Wow. The stool was designed to meet the gallery’s need for a robust piece of furniture that was stackable and furthermore to compliment the rough concrete interior of the gallery with the warm character of the wood. This oak stool was milled from a solid oak block. Thus it appears as a robust monolithic form without joints, screws or glue. The character and imperfections of the wood are allowed to stand out and help make each stool unique in terms of colour, knots and the patterning of the wood. The stools were designed with 3D software and then cut by a CNC wood router. Afterwards it was finished and polished by hand and treated with lightly pigmented oil. The Bow-Wow Stool is produced by PP Møbler.
