Designer Ryan Frank’s latest creation, ‘Isabella’ will be introduced at the London Design Festival this September. ‘Isabella,’ a totem pole style stacking stool, is constructed of straw and wool, and draws inspiration from traditional hand carved African seating.

In an effort to avoid the use of exotic hard woods, the stools are made from a solid section of strawboard, a sustainable, formaldehyde-free material made entirely from compressed straw. The straw profile is wrapped in 100% felted wool, creating a comfortable, tactile product, and also allowing for a broad range of earthy colors. The stools can be stacked on top of each other to conserve space when not in use creating a cool, sculptural, totem pole structure for all you tribal types out there.
