The Zuiderzee Stool by Studio Maarten Kolk & Guus Kusters is a design assigned by the Zuiderzeemuseum, Enkhuizen, The Netherlands. The stool is an element of the redesign of the information center of the museum.
When Studio Maarten Kolk & Guus Kusters began working on the stool project they spent some time visiting the depots of the museum. In one of the storage units they discovered a small yellow stool most likely used for milking cattle.
The portability and ease of a stool seemed the perfect seating choice for the information center, so the design duo modernized it and thus the Zuiderzee Stool was born.
It is made of solid ash and available in yellow, dark green and natural ash. The first numbered edition of 25 has been produced by the museum and are available in the shop of the Zuiderzeemuseum. The stool has also been admitted in the collection of the museum. The Zuiderzeemuseum and Studio Maarten Kolk & Guus Kusters are still looking for a partner in production.
