Bow-Wow Stool
designed by architect Morten Emil Engel

Morten Emil Engel has won the international competition to design a stool for a new exhibition building in Krabbesholm Højskole by Japanese architects, Atelier Bow-Wow.

The stool is carved from one solid piece of oak wood to provide a rugged, organic, joint-free, highly durable piece of furniture made to last for generations. No screws, glues or chemicals are used in the making, only organic oil for surface treatment.

The stool can thus be composted at the end of it’s lifespan to provide nutrients for future growth and complete a cradle to cradle cycle.

All stools are completely unique due to variations in color, grain, pattern and texture of the wood and the stool tells the story of the tree it originated from thereby further reinforcing nature’s beauty and imperfections by revealing it’s age and characteristics that make each piece unique.
