A highly functional, light and unimposing stool made with a simple wire frame and cork seat.

Available in black or white, Sidekick is inspired by the silhouette of a glass science beaker, with its wire frame resembling a 3D line drawing of a beaker's form.

Not only does the cork seat mimic the cork stopper commonly found on laboratory beakers, but it is also warm, smooth and velvety to the touch. Cork also possesses excellent impermeable, buoyant, non-allergenic and fire resistant properties.
