La Manufacture, 2020
For the GARDIAN stool, the notion of seating has been reduced to a minimum, down to its simplest form. It is a nomadic object, an occasional seat that becomes useful wherever it is: at work or at the bedside, around a table or a desk.
Inspired by totemic neck rests from Africa, it is here reduced to its primary function of supporting the body in a seated position. Its shape borrows from the proud head of the bulls, while its name is inspired by those who raise them in herds, the herdsmen of the Camargue.
