More on Ane
Troy Backhouse, the project leader of the award winning furniture design Ane said, "The Ane stool has solid timber slats of timber that appear to float harmoniously, yet independently from the timber legs, above the steel frame. The designer states that the seat, hand crafted in certified eco-friendly timber, is formed through the unique use of multiple pieces of one shape of wood positioned and cut in a dynamic way. When seated on the stool, the slight rise in angle to the back and the roll off angles on the sides are finished in a way that provides a natural, comfortable sitting position. The Ane stool has just the right degree of complexity to create an elegant finish." Learn more at:
