Two new pieces from the Architect's Collection by Studio Dunn debuted at ICFF 2015, the Architect's Stool and the Architect's Caf© Table. Taking inspiration "from the intersection between industrialism and luxury," designer Asher Rodriquez-Dunn referenced the task furniture of architects, engineers, and admen from the early to mid 1900s.
Industrial Materials Meet Luxury Design
The Architect's Collection combines wood and metal, a new material for Studio Dunn, which specializes in handcrafted wood furniture. The stool and table in the new collection were built by Studio Dunn's own expert craftspeople in collaboration with a local metal fabrication workshop. Details include wooden stool seats hand-turned on the lathe and hand-cut leather backrests.
The Architect's Stool does not ignore comfort for the sake of style. This height-adjustable piece rotates between standard 24-inch counter and 30-inch bar heights. A unique feature is that the stool and footrest adjust simultaneously, so the footrest always remains a comfortable 17.5-inch distance from the seat. The Architect's Table is no mere looker either. It uses a classic acme thread and lock nut to revolve from 30 to 42 inches in height, complementing the stool's adjustable range. The dual heights of the table also make the piece flexible: use the Architect's Table as a dining or work surface, or a plant or sculpture stand.
