Amid all the dialogue about sustainability, one frequently under-looked notion is that of timelessness.
Stabellenbank by Studio Seitz. Stability in this generation and for many more to come.
If a product is durable, beautiful, and classic in the sense that it never goes out of style, this goes a long way towards achieving sustainability.
Stabellenstuhl. Solid ash construction with beautifully turned legs.
The idea of doing more with less, or investing in quality over quantity, is a guiding philosophy for Studio Seitz, a New York-based design studio with manufacturing facilities in Switzerland.
The ethos builds on generations of Swiss makers and a tradition of artisanal craft: "heirloom-quality furniture, passed down through generations, is a foundation for our design."
Studio Seitz' focus on sustainability is found not only in the timeless quality of their products, but also in their emphasis on renewable, non-depleting resources: locally-sourced FSC-certified solid European Ash, aluminum, recycled brass and glass, and stoneware.
A modern take on multi-purpose seating, Stabellenbank and Stabellenstuhl capture this combination of aesthetic appeal, high-quality, and long-lived versatility: "create a welcoming entryway, add extra seating for family dinners, or upgrade the foot of your bed."
