Elka Stool is a minimalist design created by New Zealand-based designer Oscar Pipson. Inspired by the Cervidae (deer family), specifically the geometries and joins of its antlers and its strong, tall, aggressive stance, the Elka Stool is an exploration of organic transitional geometry and multi-axis CNC machining. Focusing on the simplicity of structure and complexity of the curve, Elka finds its beauty in the subtle details; smooth curves, soft transitions and sharp lines that create a strong contrast within its overall geometry. Made of European Beech and reinforced with steel pins, Elka exploits new technologies in CNC machining to create seamless joints and expose stunning topographies within the grain. From a distance Elka stands as a gesture, it’s not until you engage more intimately with its structure that it exposes its hidden beauties to you.
