Beret by Samuel Wilkinson

Beret is a minimalist stool created by London-based designer Samuel Wilkinson for Crassevig. Beret is a wooden stool that combines pure geometry with comfort. The main idea was to design a stool that has a surprising level of comfort within a slim minimal form. This combination is achieved through the unique form of the round 3d ply seat pan. The form is pushed out at the front and in at the back while retaining a pure 2d circle form above. Beret’s slanted design was a response to observations of how users often perching on the front edge of stools especially when combined with a surface so a key part of the brief was to provide good comfort whether perched on the edge or sat straight up. The sculptural seat pan floats above tapered solidwood legs fixed with a clean ring foot bar that notch’s into the leg to produce an elegant multi-functional design.
