I was really inspired by Andi’s post a couple days ago about these beautiful pens by AJOTO that I wanted to start sharing some other examples of beautiful product design. The other day I came across these incredible Banquinho Nº2 stools by Adaism and was totally entranced by their design. The base is actually old stock from “the Portugese metalware factory ICA designed in 1955 by António and Luis Pereira but then combined with a new, hand-sewn leather seat. The combination is powerful, giving both an industrial yet contemporary feeling to the stools. I’m sad their isn’t an example of what these look like when folded, I’m sure they’re gorgeous.
Adaism also has an amazing collection of leather objects that you’ll probably want to drool over. If you’re on budget, beware.
