A Minimalist Stool Inspired by Fonts

When it came to designing her latest furniture project, Ola Giertz explored the world of fonts and settled on the letter ‘T’. The shape on the letter lent itself perfectly to becoming the minimalist seating option, Mr. T, which comes together when a vertical tube intersects a horizontal one.


Its silhouette may be sharp, but its edges are soft and curved, inviting anyone to sit. The ‘T’ rests upon a swivel base letting you sit in any direction.
