Boet, which means ‘nest’ in Swedish, is a stool that takes its form from that of a bird’s home that sits high amongst the trees – elevated, protected, supported by strong branches and a trunk where a soft, rounded place to rest can be found. Created by Stockholm-based Note Design Studio, the seating object is composed of a metal structure with a cork seat.
Boet comes in white, black and blue, and there are high and low versions. The stools are on show at the Couplicite Exhibition during Maison et Objet 2011 in Paris. Personally, I’m a big fan of this idea to combine a polished shiny base with a somewhat rough and ‘raw’ matte seat in one product!
