Hest

Hest is the playful culmination of many years of research, analysis and exploration.

We wanted to simulate the action of saddle sitting and all the benefits it encourages, while creating a dynamic and sculptural form.

The seat is a hand carved fiberglass shell with geometry that encourages an open, active and engaged posture.

The powerful, robust and beautiful structure of the horses skeletal system was used as inspiration for the legs and frame. This angular form enables a flex and bend through the frame to give a gentle pivoting action while sitting.

 

The stool was designed in two heights, a standard low sitting height and a high stool version.
