That shape is, what is known in the surface design world as, an ogee. The Flosion Stool by Amy Tang is a beautiful example of a motif-turned-object. By nature of the shape, stools can be added and fitted together to form a repeat pattern of furniture in custom sizes, shapes, and configurations.
Flosion is made of hoop pine available in a White Ash or Walnut stain and comes with leather cushions in white, black, caramel or stripe. It’s multifunctional as a stool, a side table, or modularly expanded into a bench.
I really, really love these stools. Amy Tangâ€” I’m jealous!
