Well, I’m a pretty big fan of this stool, called Lastu. The seat is mold pressed veneer, and the legs, made of oak, are arranged in a tripod-styled formation with a metal pole driven horizontally across the legs to secure them and to maximize strength. I think it’s got some nice lines and I appreciate its simplicity.



The name ‘Lastu’ came from the seat’s potato-chip shape, hence Chip (Finnish Lastu).
