001 Stool by Vaarnii
The 001 Stool is essential, immediate, resilient. Like the Dining Tables and Chairs before it, Fredrik Paulsen has created a pleasingly archetypal design. Although Stool is the smallest object in the 001 family, this small seat loses none of the bulk that characterises its siblings. Generous dimensions of timber are used to full effect, making a reliably sturdy object. Yet 001 Stool is light enough to be moved around easily because Paulsen wanted to be clear about designing practical everyday seating. The addition of a dovetail joint makes for an easy-to-construct object.
Made in Finland of Finnish pine.
All Vaarnii products are locally made by a small number of expert Finnish makers. All pine wood is harvested from sustainably managed Finnish forests, PEFC certified and slow grown.
Pine is very characterful material. As a result of the naturally occurring oils and resins, pine will change colour as it ages. Heartwood and sapwood will start aging at a different speed resulting in gorgeous stripy patterns. The color will gradually even out and mature to a beautiful honey tone over the course of years.
Although our pine wood is the hardest soft wood you can find, it will dent and scratch over time. We ask you to embrace these characterful signs of aging.
Our raw material is hand selected for maximum quality. Because of the nature of wood, each product has a unique grain, colour, and pattern.
