The Coiled Stool is inspired by colored threads, an ergonomic tractor seat and Filipino basket weaving techniques.

Aimed at a younger, design-minded audience the new Umbra Shift Collection included this colorful rope stool by American designer Harry Allen.

Mounted on four wood legs, hand-woven threads cover a rattan core to create a surprisingly comfortable tractor seat. The Coiled Stool fits easily into casual and formal environments.

About the manufacturer: Umbra Shift is an extension of Umbra that focuses on contemporary influences in the design community. For more than 30 years, Umbra has broken the mould by creating entirely new categories that apply thoughtful design to everyday items. Umbra Shift revisits these roots with a roster of established, emerging, and in-house designers who share Umbra's passion to re-think things, designing personal objects they themselves would want to give or use at home. The result is a collection that expresses diverse points of view, yet sits together with a shared belief in ideas that are functional, familiar and forward thinking.
