Using bold graphic shapes like the triangular seat and Y-shaped footrest, Inga Sempe has created an instantly recognisable piece of contemporary design, imbued with a strong silhouette by the designer’s practised hand.
Each element has been carefully considered, from the gently tapered legs to the rounded corners of the seat. Constructed in natural wood by Fogia, the Tripot stool is richly tactile, the visible wood grain enhancing the stool’s aesthetics with its subtle texture.
